Aviation Law

2010, Aeronautics/Space Law, Legal Education editor

Cases and Problems
By: Wendy B. Davis

Davis’s work is an exceptional resource for any researcher interested in aviation law.

Comparative Criminal Procedure

2010, Comparative Law, Criminal Law and Procedure editor

History, Processes and Case Studies
By: Raneta Lawson Mack

This work takes readers one step further than other texts on the market. Most other comparative works in the area of criminal justice are primarily dedicated to the issue of reforming criminal procedure.

Comparative Criminal Procedure has three primary functions:

  • Offer readers a deeper look into criminal procedure
  • Address the features of the criminal justice system post-September 11, 2001
  • Address the move toward uniform criminal procedure

This work is unique and distinctive,

The Law of the International Criminal Court

2010, Criminal Law and Procedure, International Law editor

By: Young Sok Kim

Kim’s work offers a clear and in-depth look into the law, procedures, composition, and authority of the International Criminal Court. It also aims to bridge the gap between the unfavorable position of those states refusing to ratify the Court’s treaty, including the United States and Israel, with the stance of a large majority of other governments desiring to establish a permanent International Criminal Court. Kim’s knowledge and first-hand experience in shaping the ICC makes this a necessary addition to all international law collections!

Memorials of the Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States

2010, Biography/Writings on Legal Minds, Constitutional Law editor

Volume Six
Edited and with a preface by: H. Kumar Percy Jayasuriya

Now Available from Hein!

When a justice of the Supreme Court dies, the legal community loses a leader. Fittingly, the Supreme Court Bar and Bench memorializes these losses. Since 1822, upon the death of a Justice, the Bar of the Supreme Court has appointed an ad hoc resolution committee to draft a resolution memorializing the life of that justice. The resolution summarizes that justice’s biography, explains his major contributions to the development of the law, and reflects on the qualities that captured the respect and admiration of those who best knew him.

An Investigation into the Removal of Nine U.S. Attorneys in 2006

2010, Hein's Electronic Documents Reprint Series, Legislative History editor

On December 7, 2006, at the direction of senior Department of Justice officials, seven U.S. Attorneys were told to resign from their positions. Two other U.S. Attorneys had been told to resign earlier in the year. When these removals were made public in late 2006 and early 2007, members of Congress began to raise questions and concerns about the reasons for the removals, including whether they were intended in influence certain prosecutions. Beginning in March 2007, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) and the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) conducted a joint investigation into the removal of the nine U.S. Attorneys. This work describes the investigation and focuses on the reasons for the removals and whether or not they were justifiable.
