Adamson wrote this book to provide a thorough, basic, working knowledge of the law and to train the student to observe both potential and actual events from a legal perspective. The text uses common sense textual discussion written in conversational language and contains short, edited cases.
Insight sections on topics such as how to choose an attorney, how to compensate an attorney, how to enter the legal profession, and others answer practical questions and are found throughout the book.
High-profile cases allow students to focus their knowledge and due to their controversial and current nature, tend to keep students involved.
Discussion cases are located after each case at the end of the chapters to provide students an opportunity to express their understanding of the issues.
The text is written in a conversational tone that tries to impart not only the rules but the logic behind the rules that ties them together.
Each chapter begins with an outline that incorporates the objectives of the chapter.
Hypothetical examples are highlighted and used throughout the text.
Condensed definitions of all significant terms appear in the margins for quick reference.
The material at the end of each chapter includes vocabulary studies and problems, some of which are open-ended and capable of being answered in many ways. ...show less
