Featured Resource List

 

Robert A. Feldman, Raymond T. Nimmer
Drafting Effective Contracts: A Practitioner's Guide, 2nd edition, Aspen Law & Business, 1999.

KF807.F452

Drafting Effective Contracts provides all of the tools necessary for attorneys whose livelihood centers on drafting and negotiating contracts. A favorite of professional drafters for over a decade, this encyclopedic resource contains a consistent structural analysis and a comprehensive set of drafting elements that can be used from contract to contract.

Users of the Second Edition are "walked through" the thought process by which contracts are created, supplied with excellent sample contract provisions, and offered direction around the drafting walls that may be encountered in drafting agreements for goods and services, promissory notes, guarantees, or secured transactions.

A highlight of the new edition is Litigated Language, an appendix that provides examples and analysis of actual contractual language that has been the subject of litigation and can serve as a springboard for future research and drafting endeavors.

 

 
Patrick Schmidt
Lawyers And Regulation: The Politics Of The Administrative Process, Cambridge University Press, 2005.  

KF3570.S35 2005

 

This book is a close study of lawyers who practise occupational safety and health law in the United States, using detailed interview and survey data to explore the roles that lawyers have as representatives of companies, unions, and OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration). Placed in the context of evolving understandings of regulatory politics as a problem of public-private interaction and negotiation, the book argues that lawyers adapt to multiple roles in what prove to be highly complex settings. The core chapters examine stages of the administrative process where various groups attempt to shape the immediate outcomes and the development of OSHA law. These stages include administrative rulemaking, post-rulemaking litigation of government standards, regulatory enforcement, and compliance counseling by lawyers.
