American Legal Process, Second Edition

Series / Aspen Casebook Series
Teaching Materials
Table of contents

There have long been a number of “introduction to law” textbooks (primarily aimed at non-American lawyers) and, more recently, textbooks dealing with legislation and regulation. American Legal Process is perhaps the only work since the creation of Henry M. Hart, Jr. & Albert M. Sacks’ iconic legal process materials to include extended discussions not only of those topics, but also of the judicial process. The Second Edition represents a continuation of and improvement on the first edition. There is no other law textbook quite like it.

New to the 2nd Edition:

  • Reorganization along the lines of the three branches of the U.S. government (legislative, executive, and judicial) and Articles I, II, and III of the U.S. Constitution

  • An increase in the number of chapters from four to 13 (including an introductory chapter) to enhance readability and comprehension

  • New/expanded discussions of current topics in Legal Process, including amicus curiae practice; the use of cameras in the courtroom; corpus linguistics; decisional methodology; sua sponte decision making; and the use of foreign law

Professors and students will benefit from:

  • Increases in content through an expanded use of notes

  • Plain, readable text; very straightforward presentation

  • Fascinating subject matter
