Select Legal Topics: Civil, Criminal, Federal, Evidentiary, Procedural, and Labor
Select Legal Topics is a compendium of legal journal articles covering a wide spectrum of topics in the fields of criminal law, evidence, civil procedure, family law, labor and employment law, civil rights, tort law, and federal procedure. For example, the reprinted criminal law articles include analyses of suppression motions and the requirement that the criminal defendant be afforded a speedy trial. The section on evidence includes articles that analyze polygraph and DNA evidence. The civil procedures articles consider the requirement of filing a notice of claim when a municipality is the subject of a lawsuit, and developments in trial by jury. Articles covering family law consider artificial insemination and paternity, as well as child abuse and child negligence. The labor and employment articles include analyses of discrimination in the workplace and trial by jury. The civil rights articles mainly consider the Civil Rights Statute 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1983. The articles focusing on tort law include analyses of loss of consortium, the intentional infliction of mental distress, and baseball liability. Finally, the federal procedure articles consider eminent domain, pretrial orders, the finality requirement in federal appeals, and an analysis of rules 15 and 16 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. This book will serve to inform laymen, students, lawyers, law professors, and perhaps, the judiciary, of ideas and developments in these fields of law.

Select Legal Topics, Volume II

The second volume of Select Legal Topics updates, analyses, and covers current developments in such areas of criminal law, criminal procedure, state civil procedure, civil rights matters, constitutional issues, and significant recent Supreme Court decisions. Select Legal Topics also covers issues of mental disease or defects in the case of a criminal client and considers the rules in the criminal procedure law concerning motions to set aside the verdict as well as post-conviction motions.

Section one analyzes mainly criminal law issues. Section two considers civil rights issues. Included in this section are such issues as the First Amendment, state action, and other more specific and exact issues in this area. Section three of the book considers various procedural issues. The book also includes a comprehensive index and table of cases.

This collection of essays and thoughts covers such areas as basic Christian thought, which includes traditional family morality and a great concern for alleviating poverty and promoting social justice, political thought comparing the need for a system which includes both socialist and capitalist elements, and the need for values in our society, which has come to emphasize money, power, and greed as philosophical goals and values, though they are not.
