This book leaves newcomers to criminal law with what they need most: key concepts they can remember! Too many criminal law guides bury the novice in detailed rules when nine times out of ten mastery of the fundamental concepts is the key to success on the exam or in practice. Remembering these concepts is made easier by a "forest before the trees" organization and the use of quirky, often funny examples that stick the concepts to the reader's memory. Bonus chapters offer valuable tips for students on how to succeed in the study of the law. You'll laugh and learn. Learn more about this series at ShortandHappyGuides.com.

Law School Chronicles A short, witty, and provocative novel about law, law school, and civil litigation, ideal for students considering law school, students already there, and curious readers. "It's like the first year of law school, only funnier."A law professor ponders "Was the life of the mind the right choice?" To find out he teams up with his daughter to try a wrongful death case. Marie, 13, found her mother dead, suffocated by gas escaping from a defective furnace. Will the defendant corporation escape liability by clever legal ploys? Marie's ambition is to join the Marines and become a doctor as did her fallen father. Would a multimillion dollar judgment rob her of that ambition and ruin her life? Professors debate, lawyers plot, and law students pray that they won't be called on. The professor's wife, now a hospice volunteer, knows from decades teaching high school English that law professors took the road less difficult. His daughters, a criminal defense lawyer and a cop, enliven empty-nest dinners, while his dog Toby, a lab, silently resents vegetarian fare, mostly because there is so little of it. Then there's the investigator on the case, an ex-cop who prefers Buddha to Bud. Professor Hegland knows his stuff. His Introduction to the Study and Practice of Law introduces students to the joys of law school, and his Trial and Lawyering Skills and A Short and Happy Guide to Being a Lawyer introduce lawyers to the joys of law practice. He has spent his career at Arizona, with stints at UCLA, the University of San Diego, and Harvard. His degrees from Stanford, Berkeley and Harvard prove that you can fool some universities, some of the time, and that's good enough for tenure.

As a part of our CasebookPlus offering, you'll receive a new print book along with lifetime digital access to the downloadable eBook. In addition, you'll receive 12-month online access to the Learning Library which includes quizzes tied specifically to your book, an outline starter and three leading study aids in that subject and the Gilbert� Law Dictionary. The included study aids are the Black Letter Outline on Constitutional Law, Acing Constitutional Law and A Short & Happy Guide to Constitutional Law. This casebook continues to focus upon Supreme Court opinions and other primary documents, offering deep and wide coverage of almost all major areas of constitutional doctrine in a way very few other casebooks do. For decades, the distinctive pedagogical approach reflected in the book - its commitment to providing as much of the raw decisional, statutory and historical background material as is practical - has allowed teachers to structure constitutional law courses as they see fit, and has encouraged students to formulate their own generalizations directly from the materials. The book covers all major traditional constitutional topics, including the role of the federal judiciary, separation of powers, federalism, the non-criminal provisions of the Bill of Rights, and the Reconstruction Amendments.
