Ridgway's Veterans Law: Cases and Theory
Hardbound - New, hardbound print book.
This casebook is the first since the creation of the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims to fully support a doctrinal course on the law of veterans benefits. The book equally supports theory-based classroom instruction and practice-based clinical teaching. The cases focus on those most influential on everyday work in the field, while the notes and questions support discussions of descriptive and normative theory. The overall approach is to compare how veterans law handles issues common to related areas, such as torts, evidence, administrative law, and civil procedure. It further examines whether the differences can be explained by veteran-friendly doctrines, administrative considerations, or historical inertia.
