Reagan William Simpson, Mary R. Vasaly.

The amicus brief : how to be a good friend of the court. ABA, Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section, c2004, 2nd ed.

KF8748.S536 2004

 

This book traces the origin of the amicus brief and takes us through the evolution of its use and purpose from before common law to the current modern legal era.  It outlines the process of writing and filing an amicus brief. Included in the process are ethical considerations. Finally, this book provides detailed examples of prior amicus briefs to illustrate the writing process.

 

Hugh B. Wellons, et al.

Biotechnology and the law. American Bar Association, c2007.

KF3133.B56B563 2007

 

The book is written to help lawyers to identify the legal issues and processes that must be faced by their clients in building, marketing, and protecting a biotech business. The contributors provide thorough, yet accessible, overviews of biotech subspecialties.  Detail is paid to practical application because a biotech legal practice involves specialized subject matter and regulatory schemes that, generally, are not part of the business lawyer's repertoire and which can present many hazards for the uninitiated. Because of the expansion in biotech practice beyond the traditional organizations and their representatives, this guide will help lawyers find their way through the biotechnology maze.
