California Globe contributor Chris Micheli, an Adjunct Professor at McGeorge School of Law, has just published his second casebook entitled: “The California Legislature and Its’ Legislative Process: Cases and Materials.” This casebook, the first of its kind, explores in depth the California Legislature’s powers and authority, as well as the state legislative process.
Micheli explained that the casebook, which is intended for college and law students, but also practitioners, reviews the relevant state constitutional and statutory provisions and key appellate court decisions that interpret and explain many of the constitutional and Government Code provisions applicable to the Legislature and legislative process. There are also explanatory materials throughout the casebook, as well as commentaries reflecting current legal issues.
For the benefit of readers, and course instructors who use the casebook, many of these explanations, and all of the court decisions, are followed by notes and questions to provide further insights and prompt additional thought and discussion about the cases and materials covered.
Micheli said that this casebook is intended to provide readers with a thorough understanding of the California Legislature and its legislative process. The first half of the book covers the Legislature, while the second half of the book explores the legislative process.
In addition to the explanatory materials, numerous appellate court cases are included throughout the casebook. The cases included were chosen because they will help explain the relevant areas of law, and the cases are written clearly with analysis of the facts and law to demonstrate to students how the courts reached their decisions.
The casebook is published by Carolina Academic Press and is available here.
