Publisher: Cengage Learning

ISBN: 1401889190

Category: Law

Page: 144

View: 9058

The Professional Paralegal Workbook is a reference that was conceived out of necessity. Many paralegal books lack certain subject matter and can be unwieldy as a general reference and exercise book for professionals and students. This book was developed to bridge those gaps. One area that is thoroughly covered is criminal, tort and contract law. The book includes chapters on these subjects that examine the essential elements of the law and include discussion points to facilitate further exploration. There are also exercises designed to be used either in discussions, as a study methods, or as review. The book functions as a launch pad for discussions and creates many opportunities for the reader to review material covered, allowing for a full understanding. The range of subject matter is attractive to most general law courses and is applicable to both the paralegal market and the undergraduate pre-law course. The concise yet thorough treatment of substantive law issues is coupled with interactive and hands-on exercises and discussions. Legal analysis, writing and research are covered in addition to the treatment of substantive law. The workbook is an interactive, portable book that professionals, students, and instructors can easily utilize in the office, classroom, or home study environment.

Since the earliest days of cinema the law has influenced the conditions in which Hollywood films are made, sold, circulated or presented – from the talent contracts that enable a film to go into production, to the copyright laws that govern its distribution and the censorship laws that may block exhibition. Equally, Hollywood has left its own impression on the American legal system by lobbying to expand the duration of copyright, providing a highly visible stage for contract disputes and representing the legal system on screen. In this comprehensive collection, international experts offer chapters on key topics, including copyright, trademark, piracy, antitrust, censorship, international exhibition, contracts, labour and tax. Drawing on historical and contemporary case studies, Hollywood and the Law provides readers with a wide range of perspectives on how legal frameworks shape the culture and commerce of popular film.
