The user will encounter a new format, the "judicial essay," here and there. The judicial essay is a memorable passage extracted from a judicial opinion, given its caption by the editors, and included in the book to preserve material that otherwise would be badly located or omitted as obsolete. Most of the statutes and many of the conventions, rules, and forms now appear in the book close to the pertinent cases, rather than in the Appendix as they did in the 1974 edition.
