LAW: CASES AND PROBLEMS
for Professors interested in adopting this book, obtaining a review
copy, or obtaining a copy of the teacher's manual
PDF of the full Table of Contents
In this casebook, author
James Grimmelmann provides tightly edited
cases, focused questions, and topical problems to direct students’
attention to critical issues. Mini-essays provide the technical
background to make sense of Internet technologies and the historical
conetext to make sense of Internet law. The core of the book can be
taught comfortably in a 3-credit course, but professors can easily use
the book's embarassment of riches to explore topics of interest. The
casebook responds to the “law of the horse” critique by embracing the
doctrinal diversity of Internet Law. It prepares students for complex,
real-life practice by showing how actual Internet cases raise
interrelated problems from throughout law.
