This casebook is designed for foreign lawyers and law students who wish to familiarize themselves with the U.S. legal system. It discusses, among other things, the legal culture of the U.S., briefing cases, common law, civil procedure, trial techniques, and several highly charged constitutional law issues. Topics are arranged in a coherent sequence, each one building upon its predecessor, in order to give the reader a broad, yet rich, overview of the U.S. legal system in context.  For example, pleadings from the Paula Corbin Jones v. William Jefferson Clinton lawsuit are used as examples when discussing civil procedure. And, there is a sample moot court problem included in the casebook, which gives foreign lawyers and law students an opportunity to test their trial skills. The author has succeeded in his objective to compress three years of U.S. legal education into one casebook.
