revised and released July 2020
The law governing formal agreements between U.S. states is
unique. Litwak’s Interstate Compact Law continues to throw
bright light on all facets of compact law as it compares and contrasts compact
law with other intergovernmental agreements. This new edition, the Fourth, includes a new chapter on compacts with international participation.
Covering materials through Spring 2020, the book includes all
the cases, both historical and recent, that are vital to understanding the ways
that states cooperate through interstate compacts. The cases have been edited
to focus on the compact at issue, in addition to core legal principles. Notes and questions present related materials,
supporting and contrary examples, and inviting discussion points.
Examining how and why States cooperate, Litwak takes
students through the interwoven constitutional, contractual, and administrative
law of compacts. Still the only comprehensive book about the law of such
agreements, Interstate Compact Law prepares lawyers to apply compact law
principles to any manner of intergovernmental cooperation, including states’ agreements with foreign governments.
