New eLangdell Press Casebook – Bioethics and the Law: Notes, Cases, and Problems

 

photo of browne lewis law school dean elangdell author bioethicsThe purpose of bioethics is to put forth ethically acceptable solutions to the problems posed by modern medicine. The actions of healthcare providers are governed by the four principles of bioethics: autonomy, non-maleficence, beneficence, and justice. The principles of bioethics are directly connected to legal mandates. This book is designed to be used to teach a 2 or 3 credit biomedical ethics and law course or seminar. The number of biomedical ethics issues are vast and beyond the scope of this book. In this book, there will be an examination of the most common duties and rights that arise from the healthcare provider-patient relationship.

In addition to cases, the book contains problems, notes, and questions. The cases are designed to give the student a clear understanding of the relevant law. The problems are included to permit the students the opportunity to apply the law. The notes and questions are provided so the students will think critically about the policies behind the law and the outcome of the cases.

Tort Law: A 21st-Century Approach

Description:

Tort Law: A 21st-Century Approach (TL21C) introduces students to tort law with a set of cases and methods that have been updated for 21st-century legal education. Pairing classic cases with a host of recent, lesser-known cases, the casebook deliberately provides opportunities to engage with issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, ability, class as well as fundamental questions of civil justice. The book’s introduction diverges from the standard method of teaching torts, by framing the subject matter in terms of the three primary regimes of tort law—negligence, strict liability and the intentional torts—and by setting the stakes for questions of policy from the outset.

This casebook offers a series of 7 modules, each with numerous “Check Your Understanding” questions that permit students to answer questions that help them assess and expand upon their learning in real-time. These and a number of “Socratic Scripts” may also facilitate online or “hybrid” learning at a moment in which innovative approaches to teaching are more in demand or indeed, necessary.

  • Paper casebook, PDF … and …
  • Website version of casebook with interactive questions using H5P tech
  • Links in PDF go to the questions on website
  • No cost, subscription code, or DRM

CALIcon21 LEADS THE WAY! 

10,000 law faculty have spent the past year teaching on one video platform or another.  Many have had to manage their courses through some kind of website or LMS.  They now have skills – however reluctantly learned – in some aspects of computer-mediated instruction and educational video.  This is a skill set – however nascent – that will be useful in the future.  How can we build on this? If you had a magic lamp, what would be your three wishes for the way legal education is done in the 2020s?  We hope to explore this theme from the perspective of faculty, students, law librarians, educational technologists, and Teknoids in legal education.  Join us!

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS!
