Problems and Cases
Author: William F. Funk,Sidney A. Shapiro,Russell L. Weaver
Publisher: West Academic
This popular casebook, with its unique approach focusing on real problems and real administrative practice, Is now out in a new edition. The latest Supreme Court cases And The hottest issues, like the ethical issues involved in the torture memos, have been added. The new edition, however, retains its distinctive characteristics of using problems as the primary pedagogical tool, including problems that do not involve courts; raising the ethical issues peculiar to government lawyers; and orienting the course around administrative law practice, rather than theory. While theory is not ignored, it arises out of the crucible of reality-based problems, providing a basis for students to appreciate the theory.
A Contemporary Approach
Author: WILLIAM. SHAPIRO FUNK (SIDNEY. WEAVER, RUSSELL.),Russell Weaver
Publisher: West Academic Publishing
The 6th Edition of this popular casebook has been revised as part of the Interactive Casebook Series and, like previous editions, focuses on real problems and real administrative practice. Problems serve as the primary pedagogical tool, including problems that do not involve courts. The book raises ethical issues distinctive to government lawyers, requires students to parse statutory and regulatory text in solving problems, and orients the course around administrative law practice rather than theory. While theory is not ignored, the book focuses on reality-based problems that put theory in context. It includes the most recent important Supreme Court and Courts of Appeals cases, including King v. Burwell, with its rejection of Chevron when a case involves interpretive questions of deep "economic and political significance"; Perez v. Mortgage Bankers Ass'n, which overruled the D.C. Circuit's Alaska Hunters line of cases; Lexmark International's attempt to clarify the meaning of prudential standing; Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins, with its rejection of standing absent concrete injury to a person, even when a person's statutory right has been violated; and Corps of Engineers v. Hawkes' elaboration of the test for finality. In addition, the new edition joins the ranks of Interactive Casebooks, a new breed of casebook that features a novel visual display and layout that uses text boxes, and color/border segregated feature sections for hypotheticals, reference to scholarly debates, useful information for students, and provocative questions. A major distinguishing feature of the book is its inclusion of an accompanying electronic version with the extensive hyperlinking to Westlaw versions of legal materials, Black's Law Dictionary definitions, supplementary online resources and more. The Sixth Edition utilizes the CasebookPlus(tm) platform, providing students with digital access to faculty-authored self-assessments that are keyed to the text.
