Help Wanted: Carolina Academic Press in Need of Law Prof Authors

Carolina Academic Press (CAP) is beginning a series of comparative law texts called the “Contextual Approach Series” (CAS) and is looking for U.S. law professors in a variety of subject areas to serve as lead authors for entries in the series.

The goal of the CAS is to create a series of interesting, student-friendly, self-contained, accessible comparative law books that—using co-authors from the U.S. and two other countries—clearly and concisely explain how law works in practice around the world in different subject areas.  The books will be paperbound and roughly 200 pages.

The first book, Practical Global Tort Litigation: U.S., Germany and Argentina (McClurg, Koyuncu and Sprovieri), is in publication production and available for use as a model.  Detailed guidelines for authors in the series also are available.

As the title of the series suggests, each book will be based on a set of case or problem facts raising prototypical, universal legal issues in the particular subject area. This contextual approach is intended to bring comparative law to life and make it digestible and understandable to law students by giving them a foundation to attach the law to.

If you have an interest in becoming an author in this series, please send a preliminary inquiry to amcclurg@memphis.edu  [Mark Godsey]
