David M. Malone, Peter T. Hoffman, Anthony J. Bocchino

Effective Deposition : Techniques and Strategies that Work, Rev. 3rd ed.

National Institute for Trial Advocacy, c2007

KF8900.M34 2007

 

With the increasing trend toward non-trial resolutions, depositions are used as much or more than in years past in the context of motions, negotiated settlements, mediations, arbitrations, and dismissals.  Now in a revised third edition, the authors, including Law Center faculty member Peter T. Hoffman, apply their expertise as attorneys and educators to provide information on new rules, the impact of technological developments including e-discovery and digital transcription, along with new deposition techniques.

 

John Witte, Frank S. Alexander (eds.) Christianity and Law : an Introduction Cambridge University Press, 2008

K3280.C47 2008

 

This introduction explores the main legal teachings of Western Christianity, set out in the texts and traditions of scripture and theology, philosophy and jurisprudence. It takes up the weightier matters of the law that Christianity has profoundly shaped, as well as more technical topics of canon law, natural law, and state law. Some of these legal creations were wholly original to Christianity, while others were converted from Jewish and classical traditions, or reformed by Renaissance humanists and Enlightenment philosophers.
