The newest edition of the leading casebook in the field of veterans law features almost a third new cases and new sections on emerging issues to support theory-based classroom instruction and practice-based clinical teaching. This edition includes comprehensive updates and new materials on topics including Gulf War claims, class actions at the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, and the Appeals Modernization Act. The cases focus on those most influential on practice at the CAVC and the Board of Veterans’ Appeals, while the notes and questions support discussions of descriptive and normative theory. The overall approach is to compare how veterans law handles issues common to related areas, such as torts, evidence, administrative law, and civil procedure. It further examines whether the differences can be explained by veteran-friendly doctrines, administrative considerations, or historical inertia.
The book is part of West's American Casebook Series. Congratulations to the author.
