"The Murray and DeSanctis titles are designed for the current generation of law students whose familiarity and comfort with on-line and computer-based learning create a demand for teaching resources that take advantage of that familiarity and comfort level. Legal Research and Writing Across the Curriculum: Problems and Exercises applies writing across the curriculum and writing in the discipline principles to the study of law. It provides research and writing problems, drafting problems, and writing in the law discipline problems that will enable law students to develop the skills necessary to practice law. This book will give students the opportunity to immerse themselves in projects to create the type of writing that is produced in law practice. The problems and exercises are an entry into the legal discourse community. They will be focused on measuring a student's ability to produce accurate documents that serve the purposes of the problems presented within the context of a specific area of law. Part I of the book presents writing across the curriculum and writing in the law discipline problems in each of the first year law school subject areas: contracts, torts, civil procedure, criminal law, property, and constitutional law. Parts II, III, and IV provide research exercises and writing problems for each topic of a first year legal research and writing course, and track the content of the other three books in Murray and DeSanctis's interactive legal research and writing series. Part V of the book takes the writing across the curriculum and writing in the law discipline experience to upper-division law school subjects of remedies, copyright, right of publicity, and advanced constitutional law - first amendment. Whether researched and written by themselves or in small groups, the problems in this book will simulate the practice of law and introduce students to the legal discourse of a new discipline. They will afford students a realistic chance to master the concepts and skills necessary for law practice. Paired with the book is an electronic, computer-based version of the text that adds links to on-line databases and internet-based resources and supplements the text with pop-up definitions from Black's Law Dictionary. The electronic version of the text is searchable and highly portable, with internal and external navigation links, making them more valuable for use in class and out. The interactive text employs a layout that departs from the traditional, all-text casebook format through use of callout text boxes, diagrams, and color/border segregated feature sections for hypotheticals, references to scholarly debates, or other useful information for law students."--Publisher's website.

This collection is the multifaceted result of an effort to learn from those who have been educated in an American law school and who then returned to their home countries to apply the lessons of that experience in nations experiencing social, economic, governmental, and legal transition. Written by an international group of scholars and practitioners, this work provides a unique insight into the ways in which legal education impacts the legal system in the recipient’s home country, addressing such topics as efforts to influence the current style of legal education in a country and the resistance faced from entrenched senior faculty and the use of U.S. legal education methods in government and private legal practice. This book will be of significant interest not only to legal educators in the United States and internationally, and to administrators of legal education policy and reform, but also to scholars seeking a more in-depth understanding of the connections between legal education and socio-political change.

The third edition of Kerr's popular computer crimes text includes many updates since the second edition in 2009. New cases address topics such as the computer hacking laws, economic espionage online, Internet threats, criminal copyright prosecutions, searching cell phones incident to arrest, applying the Fourth Amendment to the Internet, and the validity of computer warrants. Two chapters have been restructured to make it easier for students to understand the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and the emerging rules for computer searches. The book covers every aspect of crime in the digital age, and it is presented in an engaging and accessible style. Topics range from computer fraud laws and international computer crimes to Internet surveillance laws and the Fourth Amendment. It is part traditional casebook, part treatise. It both straightforwardly explains the law and presents many exciting and new questions of law that courts are only now beginning to consider. The book is ideally suited either for a 3-credit course or a 2-credit seminar. It will appeal both to criminal law professors and those interested in cyberlaw or law and technology. No advanced knowledge of computers and the Internet is required or assumed. Computer crime law has become an increasingly important area of criminal practice, and this book provides the ideal introduction to the field. Many U.S. Attorney's Offices have dedicated computer crime units, as have many state Attorney General offices. Any student with a background in this emerging area of law will have a leg up on the competition. Students will also find the book easy and fun to read, while professors will appreciate the accessible introduction to an important new field with many open questions for legal scholars. The materials are authored by Orin Kerr, the Fred C. Stevenson Research Professor at George Washington University Law School and a leading authority on the law of computer crime.
