Summary: Discovery is the inescapable, enduring feature of modern civil litigation. Since 1960, the United States civil justice system has witnessed a litigation explosion and trial implosion. The number of cases has skyrocketed, but the number of trials has declined -- both proportionately and, in federal court, absolutely. Putting aside all other issues raised by the vanishing trial phenomenon, it clearly accentuates the critical importance of discovery. Parties evaluate cases, and make judgments about settlement value and other disposition techniques, in light of the evidence gathered in discovery. Effective discovery is crucial.

The book also considers the consequences which follow for the organization of the legal discipline by universities and uses this context to discuss the key questions of the internationalization of law schools, quality assessments, legal education and the research culture. Being the first book to address the aim and goals of legal scholarship in an international context, this insightful study will appeal to academics, graduate students, researchers and policymakers in higher education"--Provided by publisher

The constitutional origins of the American Revolution [electronic resource] - Jack P. Greene
Call Number: KF4541 .G743 2010, e-book
ISBN: 9780521760935
Publication Date: 2011
Summary: "Using the British Empire as a case study, this succinct study argues that the establishment of overseas settlements in America created a problem of constitutional organization that created deep and persistent tensions within the empire during the colonial era and that the failure to resolve it was the principal element in the decision of thirteen continental colonies to secede from the empire in 1776. Challenging those historians who have assumed that the British had the law on their side during the debates that led to the American Revolution, this volume argues that the empire had long exhibited a high degree of constitutional multiplicity, with each colony having its own discrete constitution and the empire as whole having an uncodified working customary constitution that determined the way authority was distributed within the empire. Contending that these constitutions cannot be conflated with the metropolitan British constitution, it argues that British refusal to accept the legitimacy of colonial understandings of the sanctity of the many colonial constitutions and the imperial constitution was the critical element leading to the American Revolution"-- Provided by publisher
