Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Johns and Pershbacher (both law, U. of California at Davis) understand that even the brightest of beginning law students will have questions about our legal system and, by way of answering, introduce the basic structures, relationships and institutions in the US legal system. They begin by describing the system of legal education in the US and then closely examine the legal profession in terms of what lawyers do, the venues in which they work, and how they are regulated. The book then analyzes the multiple sovereignties of the US legal system including the branches of the federal government and state governments, describes statutes and statutory interpretation, then works through the system of cases and case analysis in common law. It closes with a case study to help readers to "put it all together."
