It is zero hour for a new US water policy! At a time when many countries are adopting new national approaches to water management, the United States still has no cohesive federal policy, and water-related authorities are dispersed across more than 30 agencies. Here, at last, is a vision for what we as a nation need to do to manage our most vital resource. In this book, leading thinkers at world-class water research institution the Pacific Institute present clear and readable analysis and recommendations for a new federal water policy to confront our national and global challenges at a critical time. What exactly is at stake? In the 21st century, pressures on water resources in the United States are growing and conflicts among water users are worsening. Communities continue to struggle to meet water quality standards and to ensure that safe drinking water is available for all. And new challenges are arising as climate change and extreme events worsen, new water quality threats materialize, and financial constraints grow. Yet the United States has not stepped up with adequate leadership to address these problems. The inability of national policymakers to safeguard our water makes the United States increasingly vulnerable to serious disruptions of something most of us take for granted: affordable, reliable, and safe water. This book provides an independent assessment of water issues and water management in the United States, addressing emerging and persistent water challenges from the perspectives of science, public policy, environmental justice, economics, and law. With fascinating case studies and first-person accounts of what helps and hinders good water management, this is a clear-eyed look at what we need for a 21st century U.S. water policy.

Many cases date from the 2000s, with most of the rest from the 1990s. These present current understandings of issues and doctrines in this rapidly evolving field.As new foci, the authors have greatly expanded the number of specialized chapters treating increasingly important topics. New chapters cover such fast-changing specialties as commercial and IDIQ contracting, intellectual property, health care, construction, government and contractor workforce, false claims and defective pricing, and government takings. Also, the book treats new procedures including protests of task order awards and claims for government breaches of contract.Dozens of fresh notes by the authors cover recent developments such as government acquisition of property rights in software, and contracting in the Afghan and Iraq wars. Tiefer and Shook bring academic and practitioner experience and expertise to their treatment of government contract law.

This introductory text explores the historical origins of the main legal institutions that came to characterize the Anglo-American legal tradition, and to distinguish it from European legal systems. The book contains both text and extracts from historical sources and literature. The book is published in color, and contains over 250 illustrations, many in color, including medieval illuminated manuscripts, paintings, books and manuscripts, caricatures, and photographs. Two great themes dominate the book: (1) the origins, development, and pervasive influence of the jury system and judge/jury relations across eight centuries of Anglo-American civil and criminal justice; and (2) the law/equity division, from the emergence of the Court of Chancery in the fourteenth century down through equity's conquest of common law in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The chapters on criminal justice explore the history of pretrial investigation, policing, trial, and sentencing, as well as the movement in modern times to nonjury resolution through plea bargaining. Considerable attention is devoted to distinctively American developments, such as the elective bench, and the influence of race relations on the law of criminal procedure. Other major subjects of this book include the development of the legal profession, from the serjeants, barristers, and attorneys of medieval times down to the transnational megafirms of twenty-first century practice; the literature of the law, especially law reports and treatises, from the Year Books and Bracton down to the American state reports and today's electronic services; and legal education, from the founding of the Inns of Court to the emergence and growth of university law schools in the United States. History of the Common Law offers: dynamic teaching materials that include primary sources, scholarship, summaries, notes, and questions judiciously selected and edited sources over 250 illustrations--many in full color "Living Law "units that connect legal-historical developments to modern law an illustrated timeline that highlights key dates a comprehensive Teacher's Manual, with suggestions for using the book in a two- or three-credit course Vivid writing, engaging source materials, and lavish illustrations breathe life into nearly 1,000 years of Anglo-American legal history.

Twenty-first century lawyers practice law in a global village. They represent clients in negotiations for oil concession leases. They attend international treaty negotiations on behalf of sovereign states and environmental NGOs. They act as mediators in international child custody disputes and arbitrators for title to artworks displaced in war. They search the world for the right forum to bring claims for human rights violations, piracy prosecutions, and intellectual property protection. The successful 21st century lawyer is prepared to practice international dispute resolution, and this book is designed to assist in that preparation. It is a comprehensive treatment of the full range of dispute resolution processes, including negotiation, mediation, inquiry, conciliation, arbitration, and adjudication.The second edition updates and expands the first edition. It includes additional materials on international commercial arbitration as well as recent decisions of the United States Supreme Court, the International Court of Justice and the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes. New problems have been added and reading lists have been revised. Despite the new additions, the book remains highly teachable in a two or three credit-hour format.The law book market has many titles on arbitration and transnational litigation. This is the only casebook, however, that introduces students to all of dispute resolution mechanisms available internationally. Lawyers today need this information as much as they need the standard first year required course on civil procedure.

This comprehensive textbook covers predictive and persuasive writing and legal research, and is written in an informal style intended to appeal to today's law students. The book walks students through the writing process in short, easily understood chapters and stresses the importance of understanding the underlying principles of legal research rather than discussing the specific mechanics of ever-changing research resources. In addition to the standard topics covered in legal writing and research texts, the book offers chapters on reading, the ethics of writing, overcoming writer's block, and oral argument, and emphasizes at all points a client-based approach to lawyering skills.
