Strategies for Creditors in Bankruptcy Proceedings helps you answer the question, “What should I do?”.
Strategies is not a treatise. This book explains how to play on your client's behalf and win in accord with the rules.

For a creditor in a particular context, Strategies explains what courses of action should be considered and on what basis to make the decisions. It identifies potential ...Read More

In this fourth edition, our scholastic labor of love continues with our initial goal of providing sufficient coverage to allow for broad, deep, or broad and deep coverage. Knowledgeable observers know that the law of exempt organizations has become increasingly regulated. For example, provisions in the Affordable Care Act (which seems to have survived efforts at repeal) demand greater accountability (particularly regarding "community benefit") from exempt health care. The extent to which exempt organizations may engage in political activities, although always controversial, has become even more of an issue since the last edition.

While retaining a great majority of prior cases and materials, this edition adds a number of important new cases and legislative developments, makes minor organizational enhancements, and adds depth to the most important sections. The 8th edition continues to stress developments in the evolving meaning of “defectiveness” and problems of proof—both generally and arising from the Supreme Court’s Daubert v. Merrell Dow decision.

Chapter: Lowering the Voting Age from the Ground Up: The United States' Experience in Allowing 16-Year Olds to Vote
Since a constitutional amendment in 1971, the voting age in America has been 18 for virtually all elections nationwide. In 2013, Takoma Park, Maryland lowered the voting age to 16 for its local elections. Several other cities in Maryland followed suit. Then, in 2016, Berkeley, California voters approved a ballot measure to lower the voting age for school board elections, and San Francisco voters narrowly rejected a similar measure for all local elections. The debate has now spread to other places, ...Read More

Chapter 24: Elections as Duels
In the song "The Election of 1800," James Madison exclaims, "It's crazy that the guy who comes in second becomes Vice President." Jefferson - who had just won the presidency but faced the reality that his de facto running mate-turned-rival, Aaron Burr, was becoming the vice president, responds, "Yeah, you know what? We can change that. You know why? ... 'cuz I'm the President."
The Constitution, however, does not give the president the power to change the constitutional structure for electing the president and vice president. As Jefferson knew, only a constitutional amendment can do ...Read More

Chapter 5: The stolen poem of Saint Moling
It’s a truism of copyright scholarship that the modern concept of the author didn’t exist until the modern era. The medieval and Renaissance author was a vehicle for the text, but the modern author is the creator of the text. And in the eighteenth century, the Romantic movement transformed authorship into self-expression. This individualization of authorship enabled the creation of copyright. While the printing press made commercial publishing possible, the modern concept of the author created “literary property.” But is the truism entirely true? The concept of the author has certainly changed ...Read More

Chapter: Developing Moral Standards for Taxation
Decisions regarding the proper levels and forms of taxation are not merely questions of economics. Instead, taxation should be seen as the manifestation of a nation’s philosophical ideals of distributive justice. As such, legislators must consider the underlying philosophical beliefs of their constituents in determining the tax laws. Those philosophical beliefs should then inform decisions regarding the form those taxes should take, and amount of tax that the government should impose. This Chapter considers a variety of political philosophical positions that are common in contemporary societies, and then evaluates how a legislator might incorporate ...Read More

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 ...Read More

From the 1870s to the early 1900s, post-Civil War New York City was becoming a wonder city of commerce and invention, art and architecture, and emerging global prominence. The city and its innocent inhabitants needed to be protected from crime and corruption. Order had to be maintained. Then, as now, malefactors had to be brought to justice. But not every victim was quite so innocent, and not every defendant was as guilty as he (or she) looked.
The Gaslight Era has been called the Second Golden Age of the New York Bar. The book sheds new light on a gallery ...Read More
