  • Students will need access both in class and in the open-book final exam to the Uniform Commercial Code and related statutes, but no specific book is required, and, indeed, students can use the internet both in class and on the final exam if the website contains the UCC and its Official Comments. The recommended statute book is splendid, but not required.

    ISBN: 978-0-314-27948-4
  • You should purchase ONLY ONE of the first two books listed above. The first one listed is the cheaper, lighter, softback that covers only this course, Criminal Procedure: Adjudication.

7800 - Copyright Law (Rub)

  • Copyright in A Global Information Economy, 4th Ed.
    ISBN: 1454852011
  • The 4th edition of the casebook is new. That means that it is up to date and quite improved over the previous edition. But unfortunately it also means that it is quite expensive. It is possible that more (and hopefully cheaper) used books will be available on the market in late December when students from other universities complete their copyright courses. You will also need a statutory supplement. You can buy any supplement you want (new or used) or just download one. We will discuss your options in our first meeting.

8200 - Evidence (Simmons)

  • Learning Evidence: From the Classroom to the Courtroom, by Deborah Jones Merritt and Ric Simmons (3rd Edition)
    ISBN: 9781628101003
  • West Publishing (the textbook publisher) is piloting a new feature called "Casebook Plus," which includes not only the hard copy of the textbook but also lifetime digital access to the book and 12-month access to learning tools such as practice problems, Acing Evidence, and other study aids. Because I am an author, I get to participate in the pilot program, which means that all of you get access to the Casebook Plus series for free (instead of paying the extra premium West usually charges). So students should buy the basic, traditional version of the book (the NON Casebook Plus option) and then on the first day of class I will distribute free codes to you so you can access the Casebook Plus features if you want.

  • It’s important the students note that I’m no longer using the 4th Edition. I’ve also talked to the authors, and the differences between the two editions are meaningful.
