An Introduction to the American Legal System is a comprehensive introductory text designed for paralegal and criminal justice students, general education, and political science undergraduates. Organized sequentially, it begins with the foundations of the law and continues through the major bodies of law to legislation and procedure. Accessible to students with no background in legal studies, it summarizes “Cases in Point” to illustrate how the law applies to real-world situations. Chapter learning objectives and outlines keep students focused, and provocative questions stimulate vigorous classroom debate.
The Third Edition offers updated laws, discussion questions and references throughout, and introduces new, Internet-based content with Loislaw exercises.
