Stetson University College of Law Research Paper Forthcoming
This book is specifically designed to help pre-law students, international students, and international officials better understand the U.S. legal system. The book has an accompanying asynchronous online course. Each segment of the course and chapter of the book supports the framework for effectively learning the nuts and bolts of U.S. Law. It can assist those who need a head start with law school, those who learned English as a second language, and those who seek knowledge of how the U.S. legal system is structured and functions. An outstanding faculty of law professors from distinguished American law schools penned each of the 17 chapters ranging from an overview of the legal system in the United States to Contracts, Torts, Criminal Law, Civil Procedure, Evidence, Family Law and more. These same authors provide video lectures corresponding to their book chapters.
