In the third edition of Foundations of Law, concentration on the overview of American law and its legal system permeates the text to assist students in preparation for advanced courses of study. Over 40 excerpted judicial opinions are used to illustrate basic themes, and instructive case studies are presented to challenge students beyond acquiring knowledge, so that thorough understanding of concepts and their application in difficult scenarios can be achieved. Examples of lawsuits emanating from the recent presidential elections are included to highlight points from initial chapters on the legal system, and numerous one-page articles on cases and personalities throughout the text provide students with an in-depth view into the history of law. Each chapter is designed for one week of study, and is written with clarity and conciseness to facilitate comprehension of the material.
