The 19th century saw dramatic changes in the legal education system in the United States. Before the Civil War, lawyers learned their trade primarily through apprenticeship and self-directed study. By the end of the 19th century, the modern legal education system which was developed primarily by Dean Christopher Langdell at Harvard was in place: a bachelor's degree was required for admission to the new model law school, and a law degree was promoted as the best preparation for admission to the bar. William P. LaPiana provides an in-depth study of the intellectual history of the transformation of American legal education during this period. In the process, he offers a revisionist portrait of Langdell, the Dean of Harvard Law School from 1870 to 1900, and the earliest proponent for the modern method of legal education, as well as portraying for the first time the opposition to the changes at Harvard.

In 1993, the U.S. Supreme Court in Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc., laid out a new test for federal trial judges to use when determining the admissibility of expert testimony. In Daubert, the Court ruled that judges should act as gatekeepers, assessing the reliability of the scientific methodology and reasoning that supports expert testimony. The resulting judicial screening of expert testimony has been particularly consequential. While the Supreme Court sought to bring better science into the courtroom, questions remain about whether the lower courts’ application of Daubert accords with scientific practices. This report summarizes discussions held by an ad hoc committee of the The National Academies to consider the impact of Daubert and subsequent Supreme Court opinions and to identify questions for future study.

A conversational, reader-friendly tone pervades the book; its practical, case-study approach makes the discussion of key legal issues and examples of landmark cases easy for the reader to understand. Its focus is the practice of “preventive law,” allowing readers to recognize legal issues and challenges when they occur. Up-to-date cases involving subjects and situations that readers can easily relate to (school violence, inclusion, sexual harrassment, and other topical subjects) along with information about how to “brief” cases, help users quickly learn and disseminate often complex material. A full chapter on “ parents' rights” , unique to this book, ensures that readers understand the legal position of parents in the educational arena; a comprehensive appendix, Resources for Administrators, familiarizes them with legislation that is pertinent to education. Coverage includes: torts and school liability, religion in schools, students with disabilities, students' rights, discipline, teachers' rights, and equal coverage under the law. The comprehensive resource for teachers, administrators, parents, and guardians, this book serves as an excellent desk reference for anyone involved or interested in the legal aspects of effective education.
