People all over the world are confronted by issues such as poverty, a lack of access to quality education, unaffordable and or inadequate housing, and a lack of needed health and mental services on a daily basis. Due to these issues, there is a need for social workers who have access to relevant and timely scholarly materials in order to meet the needs of those facing these issues. The social, psychological, and biological factors resulting from these issues determine the level of a person's mental health at any given point in time and it is necessary for social workers to continue to evolve and develop to the new faces and challenges of the times in order to adequately understand the effects of these issues. In the first and second editions of the Social Workers' Desk Reference, the changes that were occurring in social work practice, education, and research were highlighted and focused upon. This third edition continues in the same tradition and continues to respond to the changes occurring in society and how they are impacting the education, research, and practice of social work as a whole. With 159 chapters collaboratively written by luminaries in the profession, this third edition serves as a comprehensive guide to social work practice by providing the most recent conceptual knowledge and empirical evidence to aid in the understanding of the rapidly changing field of social work. Each chapter is short and contains practical information in addition to websites and updated references. Social work practitioners, educators, students, and other allied professionals can utilize theSocial Workers' Desk Reference to gain interdisciplinary and interprofessional education, practice, and research.

The Fourth Edition of this unique casebook has been dramatically revised. This new edition presents the important cases, statutes, empirical data, and competing tort theories in a problems-oriented format that is designed to help students acquire a sophisticated understanding of tort law through active learning. As before, the text includes a large number of problems Now, however, the Problems, updated and considerably expanded, are organized in Sets at the end of each substantive chapter. This extensively re-written and reorganized edition includes the classic common law torts cases, but is updated throughout with teachable, cutting-edge decisions that will demand student interest and hold their attention. Particular care has been to take account of the most recent commentaries on tort law, such as the growing importance of the Restatement (Third) of Torts. Chapter One is unique among American torts casebooks in its examination of how the dominant twenty-first century tort theories influence judicial decisionmaking and scholarship. That chapter explains six key perspectives on tort law: • Law and Economics; • Corrective Justice; • Critical Race Theory; • Critical Feminism; • Pragmatism; and • Social Justice Chapter One references the famous McDonald's hot coffee litigation as a case study to illustrate these perspectives in action. Subsequent chapters continue to work through that case study and continually reference the perspectives to explain or challenge the decided cases. The authors seek to provide students with innovative cases and problems, empowering them with practical skills. By exposing students to the most important contemporary tort law theories, the Fourth Edition of this casebook encourages students to go beyond passively memorizing case holdings and the voyeuristic experience of reading appellate opinions and truly gain perspectives on tort law. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

This lean casebook is consciously designed to appeal to disenchanted users of the #1-selling Prosser casebook. Its content, organization, and cases-and-notes approach is explicitly modeled on Prosser, but the authors have capitalized on Prosser's weaknesses, focusing on providing key cases and concise, understandable notes. This book has the look and feel of Prosser, but will function much better for the many professors teaching a one-semester, four- or three-credit course. Features: Authorship--co-reporters of the Restatement (Third) of torts, and both known to be excellent teachers Conveys the core of Tort law through eminently teachable cases and informative topical notes Pedagogical notes challenge students to consider provocative questions about the cases Authors Dialogues feature informal, highly engaging discussions and debates between the authors that raise interesting and provocative points about the topic under consideration while modeling for students the skills of thinking aloud and persuasion Presents three- to five-line hypotheticals that test variations on fact patterns Fewer, more generously edited cases than Prosser New in the Third Edition: New co-author Bradley Wendel is a nationally known expert in the field of Professional Responsibility. He adds professional responsibility and legal ethic insights to the materials. Integrating this dimension to tort litigation issues will provide for exciting class discussion. A thorough integration of the newly completed Restatement (Third ) of Torts: Liability for Physical and Emotional Harm to all aspects of the material where the Restatement is of special relevance. Addition of cases adopting the Restatment view that foreseeability is not to be considered in making a duty determination. Many new hypotheticals taken from decided cases that raise novel issues of law. Professor Wendel will now be a third voice in the Authors' Dialogues. All chapters fully updated with new note material and new cases when necessary.
Gefangen im weiten Netz der Korruption Clay Carter muss sich schon viel zu lange und mühsam seine Sporen im Büro des Pflichtverteidigers verdienen. Nur zögernd nimmt er einen Fall an, der für ihn schlicht ein weiterer Akt sinnloser Gewalt in Washington D.C. ist: Ein junger Mann hat mitten auf der Straße scheinbar wahllos einen Mord begangen. Clay stößt aber auf eine Verschwörung, die seine schlimmsten Befürchtungen weit übertrifft.

Everything You Need to Know About American Law, Fourth Edition
Author: Jay Feinman
Publisher: Oxford University Press
In each of the first three editions of the bestselling Law 101, Jay Feinman gave readers an upbeat and vivid examination of the American legal system. Since the third edition was published in 2010, much has happened: several key Supreme Court cases have been decided, we've seen sensational criminal trials, and the legal system has had to account for the latest developments in Internet law. This fully updated fourth edition of Law 101 accounts for all this and more, as Feinman once again provides a clear introduction to American law. The book covers all the main subjects taught in the first year of law school, and discusses every facet of the American legal tradition, including constitutional law, the litigation process, and criminal, property, and contracts law. To accomplish this, Feinman brings in the most noteworthy, infamous, and often outrageous examples and cases. We learn about the case involving scalding coffee that cost McDonald's half a million dollars, the murder trial in Victorian London that gave us the legal definition of insanity, and the epochal decision of Marbury vs. Madison that gave the Supreme Court the power to declare state and federal law unconstitutional. A key to learning about the law is learning legal vocabulary, and Feinman helps by clarifying terms like "due process" and "equal protection," as well as by drawing distinctions between terms like "murder" and "manslaughter." Above all, though, is that Feinman reveals to readers of all kinds that despite its complexities and quirks, the law is can be understood by everyone. Perfect for students contemplating law school, journalists covering legislature, or even casual fans of "court-television" shows, Law 101 is a clear and accessible introduction to the American legal system. New to this edition: Featured analysis of: -the Obamacare case -Citizens United -the DOMA decision -the Trayvon Martin case As well as recent legal developments pertaining to: -online contracting -mortgages -police investigations -criminal sentencing
