Demonstrating how simulation can be constructed and developed for learning, teaching and assessment, the text argues that simulation is a pedagogically valuable and practical tool in teaching the modern law curriculum, and discusses the claim that this form of experiential and problem-based learning enables students to integrate the ‘classroom’ experience with the real world experiences they will encounter in their professional lives. The study is based on contributions from law teachers within the UK, Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa and the USA, as well as the authors own experiences in teaching law.

Challenging students to question the political and philosophical assumptions underlying the law, Education Law, Policy, and Practice promotes a depth of understanding about the key cases and statutes. The authors integrate the law with policy and practice, following related political, financial, and practical issues. The law is presented through a teachable mix of key cases and materials on the practice and political aspects of school law, and an effective macro organization helps place topics into an integrated framework. Each of the major issues in education law is discussed at length: the boundaries of public and private, church and state, relations; school governance and the tensions between federal power and local control; the rights and responsibilities of students and teachers; and the educational environment and its liabilities. "Practicums" in each section allow students to apply the law to realistic situations. Thoroughly updated, the revised Third Edition presents: critical new cases decided by the Supreme Court affirmative action the role of religion in public schools the rights of students to freedom of expression in school and at schools events the rights of students to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures the substantive and procedural protections of special education legislation broader treatment of school funding at the state and local level, including state court adequacy and equity litigation enhanced coverage of the role of race in American education a thorough treatment of the long line of Supreme Court cases regarding affirmative action leading up to its latest opinion in Fisher a comprehensive treatment of the empirical evidence of the role of race in the "achievement gap" and in school discipline new sections on standards and accountability, including teacher evaluation and proposed revisions to tenure increased emphasis on the range of school reform and school choice, e.g. charter schools coverage of school violence, zero tolerance discipline policies, and "school to prison pipeline" new sections on technology in schools--internet use policies, texting, and sexting latest developments in the law and policy regarding bullying developments in important law and policy governing early childhood education refined practical exercises sharpened comparative law notes

This book describes the constitutions of six major federations and how they have been interpreted by their highest courts, compares the interpretive methods and underlying principles that have guided the courts, and explores the reasons for major differences between these methods and principles. Among the interpretive methods discussed are textualism, purposivism, structuralism and originalism. Each of the six federations is the subject of a separate chapter written by a leading authority in the field: Jeffrey Goldsworthy (Australia), Peter Hogg (Canada), Donald Kommers (Germany), S.P. Sathe (India), Heinz Klug (South Africa), and Mark Tushnet (United States). Each chapter describes not only the interpretive methodology currently used by the courts, but the evolution of that methodology since the constitution was first enacted. The book also includes a concluding chapter which compares these methodologies, and attempts to explain variations by reference to different social, historical, institutional and political circumstances.
