Jordan J. Paust

Beyond the law: the Bush Administration's unlawful responses in the War on Terror. Cambridge University Press, 2007

KF9625.P38 2007

 

This book provides a detailed exposition of violations of international law authorized and abetted by secret memos, authorizations, and orders of the Bush administration. It provides the most thorough documentation of cases demonstrating that the president is bound by the laws of war; that decisions to detain persons, decide their status, and mistreat them are subject to judicial review during the war; and that the commander-in-chief power is subject to restraints by Congress.

 

Kenneth S. Cohen

Expert witnessing and scientific testimony: surviving in the courtroom. CRC Press, c2008

KF8961.C64 2008

 

This book demonstrates how to properly present scientific testimony and survive the onslaught of cross examination in court. Focusing on scientific testimony, the author demonstrates the use of scientific literature, presentation of testimony, and the language of lawyers. The author also includes his personal advice and tips on the business of expert witnessing. An extensive glossary of legal terms, detailed footnotes, and useful appendices summarizing code of conduct, paperwork, and examples of case reports are included.
