LEGAL TERMINOLOGY WITH FLASHCARDS, 4th Edition enables the beginning student to quickly grasp legal terminology through clear language and engaging repetition exercises. LEGAL TERMINOLOGY WITH FLASHCARDS, 4th Edition presents the content in an accessible way, so that students from any background can feel confident in their legal discourse, whether they’re writing briefs, memorandums of law, bills of particulars, or other legal documents. Beginning with the use of a dictionary/thesaurus in each chapter, the student is immersed into nineteen separate areas of the law with phonetic pronunciations, definitions, usages, and spellings that facilitate the fastest approach to writing and speaking with the appropriate legal terms. Following mastery of each term in the dictionary/thesaurus, the student uses multiple learning formats (multiple choice, matching, fill in, true/false, sentence completion, synonym selection) to use and reuse 90-110 terms per chapter.

Shorter than most Constitutional Law casebooks, American Constitutional Law: Powers and Liberties, 5E provides a broad survey of the field without overwhelming students. The basics of constitutional theory are presented without getting mired in highly theoretical discussions and cases are tightly edited to focus on the most important aspects with additional cases on select topics condensed into narrative summaries. The book focuses on cases and expository text rather than extensive academic commentary, and introductory text provides direction to students as they read and analyze the materials that follow. Additionally, challenging hypotheticals are provided throughout the text for use as student self-assessments or to launch stimulating class discussions. This highly teachable book can be used for a one- or two-semester course and is easily adaptable to suit each professor s preferences.
