The Verdict is In

Guess the Verdict is a fun and challenging way to learn how cases are decided in many areas of the law. It starts with summaries of cases culled from a typical first year of law school, such as Criminal Law, Contracts, and Property, and then delves into other interesting areas of the law, including Intellectual Property and Employment and Labor Law. The fun of this book is that the reader is required to test herself to see if she can figure out the verdict of each case. The author suggests reading the book on your own, or using the book as a game, with two players acting as lawyers arguing the case, or with three players, having one participate as a judge. You can read Guess the Verdict in a few sittings or pick it up and then put it down after reviewing only a case or two. Each of the case summarizes describes the facts of real cases in a way that makes reading about the law fun and engaging If you are a fan of legal thrillers and TV shows like Law & Order or you are thinking of going to law school and want to get a flavor for what you will be studying, Guess the Verdict is the book for you.

great collection of courtroom puzzles

This is a splendid little book of legal puzzles. It's an entertaining way to learn how the basics of law are applied in real life cases. It's very similar to the book, What's the Verdict? by Ted LeValliant from the same publisher - which I also recommend. The only quibble I have with the book, is that it would probably been a more challenging work if the final verdicts were separate from the appeals. But it's a fine little book! Congrats Helaine! You're a babe and please write up some more!:.)))
