Designed to help law students write and publish articles, this text provides detailed instructions for every aspect of the law school writing, research, and publication process. Topics covered include law review articles and student notes, seminar term papers, how to shift from research to writing, cite-checking others' work, publishing, and publicizing written works. With supporting documents available online, the book helps law students and everyone else involved in academic legal writing: professors save time and effort communicating basic points to students; law schools satisfy the American Bar Association's second- and third-year writing requirements; and law reviews receive better notes from their staff. The Fifth Edition, based on the author's experience teaching his newly designed Intensive Editing Workshop and First Amendment Amicus Brief Clinic, adds material on editing, rebutting counterarguments, writing strategy, identifying and using the key assets of the article, fighting "the curse of knowledge", and submitting articles to law reviews. It also adds extra examples of sound writing, as well as editing exercises.

  • Principles and institutions
  • Protection of foreigners under national law.
This casebook organizes contemporary foreign, as well as U.S., case law and literature to equip law students with the knowledge they need to engage in international intellectual property practice, in both transactional and litigation settings. Carefully selected materials also expose students to the social, economic, and cultural considerations that underpin intellectual property law around the world. The casebook covers aspects of public international law, conflict of laws (private international law), and comparative law of intellectual property. Each field of law - copyright, patent, trademark, unfair competition, trade secrets, industrial design - is introduced by a comprehensive authors' note placing the field in its international and comparative law context, and extensive notes on the cases and materials fill in relevant details, including currently and historically important topics. Materials on the major fields of intellectual property law are accompanied by materials on other related intellectual property matters, such as the protection of databases, plant varieties, geographical indications of origin, and Internet domain names. A substantially expanded teacher's guide offers step-by-step help to teaching every case and doctrine.
