The authors of this new casebook are both award-winning teachers and have organized the text to make it interesting and user-friendly for professors and students alike. The book is structured for maximum flexibility for classroom use. The chapters are of moderate length and logically divided into sections and subsections to ease omissions for professors teaching a 3-credit Remedies course. The book begins with an introduction to law and equity and places contemporary remedies in historical context. It then moves to cover each major topic—injunctive relief, restitution, and damages—in detail. Later chapters cover specific legal areas, which professors can choose from to customize coverage in their course: remedies for harms to real property, harms to personal property and physical injuries to persons, and harms to dignitary interests and constitutional rights.

The book covers many current issues and cases, including approximately 50 main cases decided during the past three years. Topics covered include (in alphabetical order): abortion (including the Texas Heartbeat Law), Black Lives Matter protests, discriminations, election interference, First Amendment violations, immigration restrictions, litigation involving Donald Trump, pandemic-related litigation, pollution, qualified immunities, and the Supreme Court's "Shadow docket."
