Florida Constitutional Law, a casebook used in Florida since 1992, is now in its fifth edition. Authors Cooper, Dunham and Woody include the functions of a state constitution and how the Florida constitution is amended; separation of power issues; the major constitutional limits on legislative power; the constitutional jurisdiction of Florida courts, as well as the separation of powers limits on the courts that resemble the Article III limits on federal judicial power; units of local government and their relationship to the state and each other; the major constitutional limitations on taxation and borrowing; a selected review of various provisions of the Declaration of Rights, including Florida¿s privacy guarantee (which is far more extensive than privacy under the United States Constitution); and Florida's homestead provision. The authors have made this edition more user friendly than the fourth edition and have created an accompanying teacher¿s manual.

To encourage students to view wills, trusts, and estates issues from the standpoint of both planners and litigators, the authors include numerous questions that require students to think about ways to draft or plan to avoid litigation, while accomplishing clients¿ goals. While the book is intended for the basic wills and trusts course, it may also be used in advanced trusts and estates courses, as it includes chapters on estate planning, powers of appointment, advanced directives, and probate. The rules governing wills and trusts continue to be state-law-driven. The authors¿ philosophy is that students gain critical insights into complex issues by studying the laws of one jurisdiction as a whole. Florida law is a perfect platform for this endeavor because it has extensive probate and trust codes and significant case decisions addressing current and cutting-edge issues.

Modern Family Law reflects the social diversity of the modern family as it examines the legal impacts of the women’s movement, the children’s rights movement, the fathers’ rights movement, domestic violence, changing sexual mores, nontraditional family forms, and developments in reproductive technology. Integrating valuable interdisciplinary perspectives, the text includes excerpts, notes, and questions emanating from history, psychology, sociology, social work, medicine, and philosophy. A variety of problem exercises, most derived from actual cases and current events, covers cross-cutting themes as well as the basics of family law. Human-interest stories that complement the cases heighten student awareness of the real impact of the law on people’s lives. Modern Family Law easily adapts to shorter or longer courses. The Sixth Edition offers contemporary perspectives on family law theory and covers new developments on such topics as alienation of affections, adoption, assisted reproduction, attorneys’ sexual ethics, bigamy, child abuse, child custody and support, divorce, domestic violence, grandparents’ visitation rights, names in the family, parentage, premarital agreements, and reproductive rights. The text features major coverage of developments on same-sex marriage, DOMA, and other issues of equality for gay and lesbian families. The decline of marriage and the rise of new conceptualizations of family are explored along with the return of the “culture wars,” including political disputes about contraception.

This concise casebook introduces students to basic family law doctrines in the context of the fundamental but often unarticulated moral and policy debates. The organization of the 26 chapters is simple and coherent. Chapter One introduces foundational principles; the remaining 25 chapters are divided into six sections that discuss family law regulation of the formation, continuation, and dissolution of horizontal (spousal) and vertical (parent-child) family relationships. Each subchapter includes cases, statutes, short notes (emphasizing the variations among state laws, historical context and conceptual grounding for the family law doctrines), problems, and a review of multiple perspectives that have influenced the development of the relevant family law doctrines, rules and policies.
