Conflict of Laws : Cases, Materials, and Problems - by Laura E. Little (Hardcover)
About this item
In her casebook Conflict of Laws, now in its second edition, internationally respected teacher and scholar Laura Little offers a progressive, innovative approach to teaching complex material. She brings to the subject her drafting and advocacy expertise as the Associate Reporter for the Restatement (Third) Conflict of Laws, authorized by the American Law Institute in 2014. In a subject where there is plenty of room for debate and analysis, this casebook offers a contemporary alternative to the subject by connecting coverage of key concepts to law practice using modern cases and problem pedagogy. With its modular design, clear writing, comprehensive Teacher’s Manual and online support, the text is highly teachable and has proven a road-tested favorite with both students and professors.
