Sources Of American Law: An Introduction To Legal Research, Tina M. Brooks, Beau Steenken Jan 2019

Sources Of American Law: An Introduction To Legal Research, Tina M. Brooks, Beau Steenken

Law Faculty Books

At its most basic definition the practice of law comprises conducting research to find relevant rules of law and then applying those rules to the specific set of circumstances faced by a client. However, in American law, the legal rules to be applied derive from myriad sources, complicating the process and making legal research different from other sorts of research. This text introduces first-year law students to the new kind of research required to study and to practice law. It seeks to demystify the art of legal research by following a “Source and Process” approach. First, the text introduces students ...

Legal Anthropology: An Introduction, James M. Donovan Jan 2008

Legal Anthropology: An Introduction, James M. Donovan

Law Faculty Books

LEGAL ANTHROPOLOGY: AN INTRODUCTION offers an initial overview of the challenging debates surrounding the cross-cultural analysis of legal systems. Equal parts review and criticism, the author outlines the historical landmarks in the development of the discipline, identifying both strengths and weaknesses of each stage and contribution. LEGAL ANTHROPOLOGY suggests that future progress can be made by treating as the distinguishing feature of law the perceived fairness of structural inequalities of social systems, rather than the traditional emphasis upon sanction or dispute resolution.

Anthropology & Law, James M. Donovan, H. Edwin Anderson Jul 2003

Anthropology & Law, James M. Donovan, H. Edwin Anderson

Law Faculty Books

This book defends the thesis that the two fields of law and anthropology co-exist in a condition of "balanced reciprocity" wherein each makes important contributions to the successful practice and theory of the other. Anthropology offers a cross-culturally validated generic concept of "law," and clarifies other important legal concepts such as "religion" and "human rights." Law similarly illuminates key anthropological ideas such as the "social contract," and provides a uniquely valuable access point for the analysis of sociocultural systems.
