Move over Cox, there is a new labor law text in town. It is Secunda & Hirsch, Labor Law: A Problem Based Approach (2012) and it should be available from LexisNexis anyday. Readers may be familar with Professor Secunda and Professor Hirsch's work. They are two of the four editors of Workplace Prof Blog, a blog we often quote and which this blog is modeled after.
What makes this book so outstanding is that it updates everything and I mean everything. The book focuses on recent caselaw and recent issues. The book is written with the student in mind and also provides several problems which are designed to stimulate interest in labor law and make the student think.
The book also covers all the classic cases and covers all the basic issues; it just does it better. Most importantly, the cases are edited and many presented in less pages than in other texts. The book also quotes from several important law review articles.
Congratulations Paul and Jeff. Everyone teaching labor law should consider this book for adoption.
