Students are also exposed to court procedures as well as alternative forms of dispute resolution such as negotiation, mediation, and arbitration. The textbook contains chapters specifically devoted to tort law, intellectual property law, constitutional law, criminal law, contract law, property law, consumer law, employment law, bankruptcy law, business entity law, and environmental law.
