9780199341696: Law 101: Everything You Need to Know about the American Legal System, Fourth Edition
Rezension:

An engaging introduction to just about every aspect of law. ( The American Lawyer)

All the benefits of that first year of law school without the tedium, the terror, and the sleep deprivation...These legal lessons are presented in a style nearly always engaging and very often humorous. ( Jurist)

An entertaining and informative introduction to the law...For journalists, those interested in the law, and fans of television law dramas, this book should be required reading. ( Library Journal)

A layperson's introduction to the legal subjects that assault every first-year law student. From constitutional law to contracts to Dickensian procedures that guide civil suites, the book gives an approachable overview of the cases and concepts that combine to form our legal system. ( Newark Star-Ledger)

Though a book is aimed at laypersons, it offers a good refresher course to update legal practitioners and paraprofessionals in areas where they do not specialize. A good read overall for those interested in the law. ( Booklist)

Law 101 attempts to teach you how to think like a lawyer - without requiring that you dedicate three years and tens of thousands of dollars to the task. The result? A practical book that is also a pleasure to read. ( The Trenton Times)

This basic text offers nonlawyers a concise, accessible overview of topics typically introduced in the first year of law school. Feinman, a law professor at Rutgers, cites seminal cases to highlight key concepts in the fields of constitutional law, civil procedure, torts, contracts, property, criminal law and criminal procedure. He does not minimize the actual complexity of these subjects, conceding variously that contract law has tormented the most students, property law "most irritates students," conflicts of law "tortures students" and civil procedure is "the most alien." Nevertheless, he distinguishes his book from the various how-to-be-your-own-lawyer manuals on the market: 'This one is fun to read.' ...But many readers, particularly those contemplating law school, will find this a painless introduction to American legal theory and practice. ( Publishers Weekly (Praise for the Second Edition))

Many readers, particularly those contemplating law school, will find this a painless introduction to American legal theory and practice. ( Publishers Weekly)

Feinman's style makes for easy reading, and Law101 is chock full of analyses, anecdotes, examples, questions, and legal reasoning set out in lay terms. Overall, the book provides an excellent explanation of what American law is, and it frequently suggests ways in which it might be improved. ( The Federal Lawyer)
