In this classic text, translated into over a dozen languages, constitutional scholar and Columbia Law School professor E. Allan Farnsworth provides a clear explanation of the structure and function of the U.S. legal system in one handy reference. An Introduction to the Legal System of the United States is designed to be a general introduction to the structure and function of the legal system of the United States, and is especially useful for those readers who lack familiarity with fundamental establishments and practices.
This text also gives the reader a clear understanding of how to research the law, the importance of case law versus statutes, and the difference between private and public law. It illustrates issues that may be confusing or troublesome and provides a solid general overview.

Allan E. Farnwsorth is formerly the Alfred McCormack Professor of Law at Columbia Law School.Review:
"The book is an excellent text when one considers the apparent primary purpose of the work...The book is a good, brief, introductory text on the Legal System of the United States...As an introductory work, the selection of topics is interesting to note. The author did not attempt to prepare a work on "American Government." The book does not discuss the political or economic systems that rule and govern the United States. Discussions of capitalism, political parties, and the executive branch of government are not included. The work does provide, however, discussions of lawyers, legal education, the legal profession, the judicial system, case law, the legislative system, and statutes. There is also some discussion of the distinctions between private law and public law.
