This three-part textbook is used nationally by legal practice professors, law librarians, and others to teach first-year legal practice courses, upper-class research classes, advanced writing courses, and LLM courses. It is divided into three sections—Legal Research, Legal Writing, and Grammar & Citation—and contains study aid material, quizzes, self-assessments, annotated samples, video testimonials, and other interactive material to teach students legal research strategies and writing techniques. It is updated each year to address upgrades on the three major legal research platforms (Westlaw, Lexis, & Bloomberg Law), as well as new editions of the Bluebook and ALWD.

These materials support a simulation course in which students investigate a potential violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). This course book introduces students to the FCPA and provides skills primers on interviewing a witness and counseling a client. The FPCA materials summarize liability and damages provisions of the statute, address the circumstances leading to the passage of the statute and its amendment, and inform students about recent DOJ and SEC enforcement trends. In addition, the FCPA materials contain a closed-packet universe of legal material addressing the “foreign official” element of the statute and the question whether charitable contributions can violate the act. By participating in this highly dynamic and realistic course, students will not only learn about the FCPA, but they will also engage in essential lawyering skills, including fact development and analysis, interviewing, counseling, team building, project management, and problem-solving.
