SUMMARY

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the American legal system for the student, beginning paralegal, or anyone else new to the legal system. The book explains basic legal concepts in a concise, easy-to-grasp way not readily available in current literature. Important concepts are highlighted for ease of comprehension. This edition includes updates to every chapter, including the important and increasing role of alternative dispute resolution in the American legal system, found at the end of Chapter Three. Discussion of various concepts has been expanded, and new sections have been added to broaden student understanding of the principles underlying our system of justice. More terms have been added to the Glossary, and many existing definitions have been expanded. Finally, the entire book has been carefully edited to render it even more readable than prior editions. This includes' the addition of more headings to better identify and subdivide the topics covered by the text. Introduction to the American Legal Systemprovides a general overview of the structure of the legal system, the criminal justice system, and the federal courts. It includes an extensive glossary as well as specific concepts and examples in the substantive areas of: torts contracts real property wills and intestate succession legislation. A chapter on legal research is included to orient the novice on issues of the law, legal material, and techniques of legal research. The United States Constitution--the primary source of U.S. law--can be found in Appendix A.
