Law is at once increasingly broad and increasingly specialized. Law in our complex, technical, regulatory state affects more people more frequently and more deeply than ever before. More federal, state, and local laws, rules, and regulations cover more trades, professions, and industries, control more lands, premises, and activities, and create more liability and risk, than the nation has ever known. At the same time, and consequently, the middle class and poor have less access to reasonable-cost, reasonably appropriate and timely law services than ever before. Vast numbers of underserved individuals are losing their jobs, homes, health, finances, families, and futures because of their inability to locate, afford, and deploy timely, appropriate, and well-fitted law services, threatening and depleting the middle class. Lawyers will meet these new needs to preserve and promote a strong middle class, by packaging, pricing, and delivering law services in new ways, in a shift called the commoditization of law. If communities are to prosper, then lawyers must standardize law products and services to meet new needs, efficiently fit those services for individual clients, price those services transparently, and deliver them timely by accessible means. Lawyers who learn these new law practice conventions will have more meaningful and rewarding careers that promote the order, openness, health, welfare, and economy of their communities. These lawyers will use more mobile and powerful technology in more clear, precise, and technical means to convey better-suited law products and services to better-served clients. A lot is at stake, and not only for lawyers.

THE FIRST-EVER COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO NEW YORK NO-FAULT PRACTICE
Rogak's New York No-Fault Law & Practice
No-Fault litigation is "a Frankenstein monster that has assumed a life force of its own, becoming so unmanageable and uncontrollable that it acts out in ways never envisioned by its creator." - Judge Charles J. Markey. And 25% of all lawsuits in the New York City Civil Court system are no-fault suits. The No-Fault regulations are complex, difficult to understand, and they leave many questions unanswered, requiring New York claims examiners, lawyers and judges to make decisions every day for which there is no clear guidance in the law.
And yet despite the enormous size, scope and complexity of No-Fault practice, there has never been a published guide for those who struggle with this field. Until now.
Lawrence N. Rogak is a New York attorney with over 25 years' experience in insurance law practice. A prolific writer, he has published hundreds of articles on insurance law practice, and a previous book, Rogak's New York Insurance Law. He is the managing partner of Lawrence N. Rogak LLC, an insurance defense law firm in Oceanside, New York, which is listed in Best's Recommended Insurance Attorneys.
Mr. Rogak has painstakingly organized No-Fault practice into 90 distinct topics, with hundreds of sub-topics, all arranged in alphabetical order. For every topic, he has provided statutes and case law with the closest thing to a definitive answer for the questions that arise under each topic. Plus, he adds his own commentary and suggestions.
For any lawyer, arbitrator, claims examiner or judgeinvolved in No-Fault practice, their copy of Rogak's New York No-Fault Law & Practice will become their best friend and companion, a road map through dark and uncharted territory.
Have you ever been raped or robbed? How about cheated out of something special and expensive? What about discriminated against, threaten, and violated until you were helpless and hopeless, and when you went for lawful help, the Justice Department which is supposed to protect people, instead protects the culprits. It's like living a nightmare, day after day, year after year for 12 years never to wake up. The horrors of disbelief and hurt, anger to forgiveness, deceit and obstruction, and justice being delayed and denied... Well, I hope you never find yourself in this situation, because you may not survive. In this nightmare, nothing or no one seems to come to your aid even after fighting in federal judicial system before 161 judges in 28 venues - even the U.S. Supreme Court eight times, just to be ignored. What a horrible feeling! The feelings only become more horrible when you know who the "Evil Demon" in the nightmare is -the United States Navy. Yes, the Navy at the Crossroads.

This book will offer advice on finding that first position. In addition, getting that first job is only the beginning. Getting through the early years and earning "tenure" is harder than it looks. There is much needed useful information on gaining that job security of tenure. Once tenure is obtained, however, the job of law teaching does not stop. Law teaching is a rewarding, lifelong career. This book offers suggestions on how to continue enjoying that career. As with all good things, they must come to a close. The book offers some tips on moving into retirement. A prospective member of the law teaching profession should read this book before getting started. A new law teacher should read the book several times during those pre-tenure years.

"Your toolkit for prevention, redemption, and occasionally retribution." -Ralph Nader Whenever you purchase goods or services in a personal, household, or family capacity, you are entitled to the rights and remedies of state and federal consumer law. Realistically, only a very small percentage of consumer problems can be addressed by hiring a private attorney. Everyday Law for Consumers teaches practical self-help remedies that ordinary Americans can use to protect their consumer rights. Michael L. Rustad, a nationally known practicing attorney and legal scholar, translates into plain English the legalese that forms the basis for many common transactions, including consumer loans, credit repair, credit, consumer leases, usury, interest rates, Internet transactions, identity theft, distance contracts, home shopping, television advertisements, door-to-door sales, and telephone solicitations. Using real-life examples, sample complaint letters, and an appendix of further examples, this easy-to-read book empowers everyday people to become effective self-advocates in an increasingly consumer-driven society.
The twenty-first century global world order creates fundamental challenges for the American model of legal education. This professional model cannot focus only on one domestic legal system isolated from the rest of the world. American law students need a realistic exposure to a transnational legal perspective in the contemporary global legal environment. This objective can be achieved in three stages. The first step requires a first year introductory course setting the foundation in public and private international law with the fundamental understanding of the comparative law methodology to grasp legal problems and institutions transcending through national boundaries. In the second stage, the transnational perspective should be emphasized in every domestic course, in the expanded coverage of public and private international law, and in the comparative law curriculum. Finally, in the third stage, law students should have the opportunity to apply their transnational learning experience by selecting an intellectually and professionally stimulating topic for academic research. Through this research, the student should focus not only on developing a thesis and writing a research quality seminar paper, but also on the potential for publication of the paper in law reviews and other legal journals. This concise Guide to Legal Research and Writing from the Transnational Perspective can be used as a practical tool in the critical third stage of the transnational legal education process. Concise practical tips will assist students in the research and writing process. Samples of articles written by the author will provide a model for scholarly writing. Professor Francis A. Gabor, is a Professor of Law at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law and a regular visiting professor at the Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. He has been teaching in the area of public and private international law and comparative and immigration law. Professor Gabor's research interest is focused on current issues of international trade and investments in Central-Eastern Europe. His treatise on Foreign Investment in Hungary was published by Parker School of Foreign and Comparative Law at Columbia University of New York.

Educational policy controversies in the United States invariably implicate legal issues. Policy debates about testing and school choice, for example, cannot be disentangled from legal rights and mandates. The same is true for issues such as funding, campus safety, speech and religion rights, as well as the teaching of immigrant students. Written for a general audience, this new twelve-chapter book explores these compelling educational policy issues through that legal lens, building an understanding of both law and policy. The book's editors are Kevin Welner, associate professor of educational policy at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and Wendy Chi, a doctoral candidate at Boulder. Both Welner and Chi are lawyers as well as educational scholars.
Knowing how to post bail and get out of jail in fifteen minutes is darn handy for almost everyone. For a disoriented 18-year-old who's found himself in a pinch, it's downright necessary. College kids are naive, eager, and prone to trouble, and whether they're funneling beer or fighting sweatshop labor, they need to know their rights. Just logging onto the university computer system, for example, opens a student to a host of legal questions about whether the school can monitor her email or her surfing habits or her blogs. But the amount of practical legal information available to the nation's 15 million college students is extremely limited and most students don't have ready access to lawyers. What they need is a handbook that will cover the issues they're likely to confront, a guide that is informative, easy to read, and not embarrassing to have on their shelves. With a retro look and a humorous, approachable tone, THE COLLEGE STUDENT'S GUIDE TO THE LAW provides legal explanations, strategies for steering clear of problems, and detailed instructions about how to deal with the authorities both educational and municipal when trouble can't be avoided. The book is divided into sections for easy access to information: "The Law in the Classroom" offers guidance on academic dishonesty, grading grievances, and professor-student relations. "The Law On Campus" discusses problems outside the classroom but on university turf, from privacy rights (whether in the dorms, on a hard drive, or in the Registrar's Office) to interactions with campus security. "The Law Off Campus" provides advice on dealing with legal issues that are endemic to university life such as underage drinking policies, landlord-tenant disputes, and credit-card use and abuse. THE COLLEGE STUDENT'S GUIDE TO THE LAW ranks with the shower caddy, the extra-long twin sheet set, and the mini fridge as an absolutely indispensable item for every college freshman. And every returning student who might contest a grade, plan a campus protest, or sign an apa
