Publisher's Summary

The skills lawyers wield in courtrooms across the country are the result of years of study. As much as we'd like to cultivate these same skills, the truth is that you cannot know how a lawyer thinks and works without studying the law itself.

Now there's an easier way to get the same foundational knowledge as lawyers - without the enormous time and financial commitment. Over the span of 48 lectures, four experienced lawyers and teachers recreate key parts of the first-year law student experience, introducing you to main areas of law most every beginning student studies.

You'll start with 12 lectures on litigation and legal practice that offer eye-opening answers to many questions about the art and craft of legislation. In the second 12 lectures, you'll learn how criminal law and procedure - an area of law dramatized by countless TV shows - really works. Additional lectures investigate the civic procedures courts follow to resolve disputes about substantive rights and examine broader questions any system of litigation must address. And 12 lectures are devoted entirely to the stranger-than-fiction topic of tort law.

Enriched with famous cases from the annals of American law and powerful arguments by some of history's most successful lawyers, these lectures offer access to an often intimidating, surprisingly accessible, and civically important field.

    "Very Interesting and Entertaining"

    This is the first (and only) “multi-professor” course I’ve had wherein all four professors were articulate, engaging, well-prepared and just plain entertaining. The legal subjects covered are wide-ranging and the professors include both historic and current reasoning and examples. The “reasoning” is especially interesting because they don’t just describe the current environment but also provide background on what it was like in the past and why it changed. This in one of my favorite courses and I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in the law and/or our legal system.

    "Way too much to digest"

    Way too much to digest in one listen. I found myself rewinding often at first then decided otherwise. Wish this course was divided into the basics first then advanced. Much of the material presented is not relevant for most cases...multistate parties with unusual conflicts.

    "Really For Everyone"

    Easy to follow and understand series of lectures. Most of the series was entertaining, but the portion related to procedure of law was boring. Unfortunately that same portion is also needed if you want to understand why courts operate the way they do.

    "Very good introduction to all aspects of law"

    A pretty good introduction into many aspects of law.
    Some of them might be a bit lengthy tedious as first listen, but it's all very well organized and important information.

    Story
    "The Laws of Man leave much to be desired ..."

    The Laws of Man leave much to be desired when compared to the Laws of Nature. I'm glad that there are legal scholars that at least recognize that fact and even seem to codify it explicitly or at least point to the cases where is it demonstrated. It's a long book, and while the examples are instructive, most of them are rather tedious, or worse, infuriating to the someone like me who is an engineer, scientist, inventor, and all-around good egg.
