Since its initial publication in 1992, the book has been adopted at 183 U.S. law schools. It mixes theory, policy, and politics with practice-oriented materials that deal in doctrine, planning, and problem-solving. Legomsky and Rodríguez make heavy use of policy analysis, fact problems, and simulation exercises. The teacher's manual contains detailed analyses of all the policy questions, fact problems, and simulation exercises, as well as synopses of all the cases, sample syllabi, and other teaching suggestions.The new edition incorporates the sweeping changes of the past five years.
