Students will be better prepared for professional life if they leave law school with an ability to conceptualize legal theory, a sensitivity to the contexts in which legal rules operate and a concrete understanding of the lawyer's role as a professional problem solver. While retaining the methods used in traditional legal education, this text uses numerous exercises designed to engage students beyond the realm of traditional legal reasoning and to develop a core skill set crucial to employment discrimination attorneys. Employment Discrimination: A Context and Practice Casebook asks students to view legal problems through different lenses, from the perspective of a plaintiff's lawyer, a judge, an in-house counsel, a defense attorney, a victim of discrimination, a person accused of discrimination, a human resources professional, and an employer. It helps students gain an understanding of what each of these individuals might consider in resolving a legal problem. The exercises' fact patterns involve both litigation and transactional contexts to help students understand the multi-faceted roles of employment discrimination attorneys. Perhaps most importantly, this book also tries to help students understand how the policy and theory underlying discrimination law affect the doctrine. The book contains numerous problems challenging students to question the underlying theory of American employment discrimination law and to consider how the law might work differently if it were based on a different set of theoretical assumptions. One of the highlights of the text is the Capstone Experience. The Capstone Experience gives students an opportunity to combine the theoretical, doctrinal, historical, and practical knowledge they have gained throughout the casebook and to use that knowledge to resolve real-world problems. The Capstone Experience provides five different exercises, each focusing on a different skill set. This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.

The ninth edition of the best-selling Cases and Materials on Employment Discrimination blends cases, notes, and problems into an integrated pedagogy that balances scholarly and practice perspectives. The authors build a conceptual framework for understanding how discrimination is defined and proven in litigation.

UPS (reconceptualizing pregnancy discrimination). Nassar v. Uni. of Texas Sw. Med. Ctr. (requiring but-for causation for Title VII retaliation claims) Vance v. Ball State Univ.

Treats the common law of the employment relationship. Considers also the enactment of wage-hour, pension and other ?minimum terms? laws to establish regulatory floors for private negotiation of employment contracts.

This novel casebook offers an accessible introduction to modern employee benefits and executive compensation law, with primary emphasis on clarity and comprehensibility in presenting these technically challenging subjects. It is the first casebook to cover both employee benefits and executive compensation, two closely related fields that are frequently simultaneously practiced by American lawyers. The text is organized to permit an intuitively ordered progression through the basic tax and regulatory tenets that underlie both employee benefits and executive compensation law, with pauses to explain fundamental nonlegal concepts often unfamiliar to students -- including present value and actuarial analysis, design principles of retirement and insurance plans, and related economic ideas such as adverse selection and moral hazard. Substantial material is also devoted to the prominent public policy questions that currently surround the provision and regulation of employee retirement and health benefits in the United States, including significant discussion of the health reform legislation of 2010 as well as controversy over levels of executive compensation. The book is suitable for use either for a single overall survey class covering both employee benefits and executive compensation law, or for a class that focuses on either topic separately.

A Casebook on Labour Law supports every university labour or employment law course in the UK, set within European Union and international law.

Each chapter summarises further reading from noteworthy books and journals, and follows a unified conceptual structure. This aims to transcend historic divisions between common law or statute, private or public, and national or international law. The book invites the reader to engage in the economic and social evidence about labour law's empirical consequences and political principles.

This book is intended as an introduction to the field of employment discrimination law, both at the abstract level of theory and at the concrete level of doctrine. It is as much an introduction for experienced lawyers and scholars who come to this field with a thorough knowledge of other aspects of the law as for law students who have just begun preparing for their careers. The new edition offers an up-to-date introduction to employment discrimination law: the major statutes, the current cases, the outstanding issues, and the competing policies in this field. The leading decisions of the Supreme Court receive a comprehensive analysis, in terms both of theory and doctrine, putting them in the context of the relevant statutory provisions and other judicial decisions. This book offers three different theoretical perspectives based on history, economics, and critical social theory to explain both the complexities and the tensions inherent in existing law.

Financial Regulation: Law and Policy (2d Edition) introduces the field of financial regulation in a new and accessible way. Even though a decade has passed since the most systemic financial crisis in the last 70 years and eight years have elapsed since a major shift in regulatory design, the world is still grappling with the aftermath. In addition, technology innovations, including Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, market forces and a changing political environment all have combined to reframe and reorient public debate over financial regulation. The book has kept up to date with all of these changes. The book analyzes and compares the market and regulatory architecture of the entire U.S. financial sector as it exists today, from banks, insurance companies, and broker-dealers, to asset managers, complex financial conglomerates, and government-sponsored enterprises. The book explores a range of financial activities, from consumer finance and investment to payment systems, securitization, short-term wholesale funding, money markets, and derivatives. The book examines a range of regulatory techniques, including supervision, enforcement, and rule-writing, as well as crisis-fighting tools such as resolution and the lender of last resort. Throughout the book, the authors note the cross-border implications of U.S. rules, and compare, where appropriate, the U.S. financial regulatory framework and policy choices to those in other places around the globe, especially the European Union.

Global markets have made antitrust law global as well. With mergers requiring approval in multiple jurisdictions, cartels in one nation affecting supply in others, and countries entering into treaties about the content or enforcement of competition laws, firms and antitrust lawyers no longer have the luxury of considering only the antitrust regulations of one nation. Antitrust law worldwide is also increasingly economic in its approach to analysing antitrust and competition policy. In the four yearssince the first edition, the globalization of antitrust law has continued apace. China has adopted an antitrust law. The EU has adopted a new Treaty, new guidelines on non-horizontal mergers, new regulations and guidelines on vertical agreements, and a Guidance Paper on abuses of dominance. In the US there have been important new Supreme Court cases (the 2009 Linkline and 2010 American Needle decisions) and the incorporation of modern economic approaches in the revised 2010 U.S. Merger Guidelines. This edition addresses new developments not only in the US and EU, but also in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Israel, Japan, South Africa, and South Korea. It also expands its coverage to add not only China's new antitrust law, but also the antitrust laws of Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, India, Indonesia, New Zealand, Peru, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and Venezuela. This is the most global and economically sophisticated antitrust casebook on the market. Addressed to students from all jurisdictions having competition laws, it will also serve as a useful reference for practitioners, competition officials, and policy-makers interested in competition law anywhere in the world.
