Key highlights include the following: * Twelve new student case study problems have been added, increasing the total number of student problems from 53 to 65 * Substantial discussions have been added dealing with: Limited liability traps, undocumented partnership traps and risks, the design and drafting of partnership and LLC operating agreements, dividend challenge, going public realities, capital structure basics, crowdfunding and the JOBS Act of 2012, oppression risks, healthcare reform, and the judicial enforcement of buy-sell agreements. * A recap (which includes three new student problems) of the statutory basics of limited liability companies and the four types of partnerships has been added, designed for those students (there are many) who never gained a grasp of these core concepts and struggle in a planning course as a result * All tax discussions have been updated to include the significant changes of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 and thoughts on what might be coming in the future * Five case study examples have been added to the choice-of-entity "factor" discussion to better illustrate the impacts of various factors * The discussions relating to securities law exemptions, deferred compensation, and business valuations have been revised, repositioned and substantially shortened.

Today's justice system and the legal profession have rendered the "lawyer-warrior" notion outdated, shifting toward conflict resolution rather than protracted litigation. The new lawyer's skills go beyond court battles to encompass negotiation, mediation, collaborative practice, and restorative justice. In The New Lawyer, Julie Macfarlane explores the evolving role of practitioners, articulating legal and ethical complexities in a variety of contexts. The result is a thought-provoking exploration of the increasing impact of alternative strategies on the lawyer-client relationship, as well as on the legal system itself.

They smelled the foul odors. They heard the power saw buzzing in the dead of night but neighbors never imagined the horrors happening right next door. The hot sultry night of July 22, 1991 was one the tenants of the Oxford Apartments would never forget. A panic stricken young man--a pair of handcuffs still dangling from his wrists--ran out of Apartment 213 and told police an incredible tale of terror. Shaking with fear, he led officers back to his captor's lair, where they made the gruesome discovery. Inside were the body parts of at least fifteen men--including torsos stuffed into a barrel, severed heads in a refrigerator, and skulls boiled clean and stashed in a filing cabinet. Tacked to the freezer were Poloroid photographs of mutilated corpses. When investigators arrested 31-year-old Jeffrey Dahmer, they realized they had stumbled onto a "real-life Hannibal Lecter"--a sadistic murderer who told them he had saved a human heart "to eat later". What could turn a handsome, former tennis player, the son of middle-class parents, into a perverse serial killer whose unthinkable acts shocked the nation? The Jeffrey Dahmer Story takes you into Jeffrey Dahmer's twisted world of bizarre sexual encounters, mutilation and cannibalism--in one of history's most appalling true crime cases. With 8 pages of chilling photographs.
