Description

Learning Conflict of Laws is designed to teach aspiring litigators. Contemporary fact patterns bring doctrines to life. Hypotheticals and simulations prepare students for the practice of law. The book, written by experienced teachers, is organized into 23 chapters, with each chapter covering a specific topic. Chapters are structured so that they can be taught with or without court opinions, depending upon the amount of attention that the teacher wishes to allocate to the topic. Court opinions are used only to illustrate the application of a doctrine rather than to introduce or to teach that doctrine. The premise of the book is to provide students with the basic doctrine so that class time can be spent applying that doctrine to hypotheticals that surface the doctrine’s complexity.
