Employment Law: Private Ordering and Its Limitations
Private Ordering is designed to be more interactive and up-to-date than other law-school casebooks, and we intend this site to be the primary means for us to communicate with the professors who adopt this text and with the students who use it.
Employment Law is constantly evolving, with new challenges continually arising as the law reacts to economic and business changes and business respond to the law’s demands. This site will, hopefully, enable you to keep current with developments that affect the teaching and study of our subject.
The organization of this site is largely self-explanatory. For example, it provides a number of resources, including links to Employment Law Examinations, Employment Law Blogs, and more traditional hyperlinks to a variety of resources that may prove helpful.
More central to our enterprise is Casebook Quick Links, which take you to Casebook Updates and Teaching Ideas.
Updates function as a kind of running Supplement to Private Ordering, keyed to the casebook itself and providing new notes and, as time goes on, new principal cases. Professors are encouraged to download the material for class distribution or just give your students assignments from this website.
Teaching Ideas is also keyed to the casebook, but consists largely of current events that raise new issues or allow teachers to consider older issues in new settings.
We will revise Updates every month or so and Teaching Ideas as events occur.
The website also offers a copy of the Teacher's Manual for Private Ordering. Sorry, students, but this is password-protected, and only your professors are allowed access. Professors should click this following link to obtain a password. The Teacher's Manual is unique in that it allows professors to add their own comments as they work through the materials. While the original version of the Manual reflects our current views, we intend it to be a work in progress, both for the authors and for the professors who adopt our book.
