Problem solving, decision making, and professional judgment : a guide for lawyers and policymakers by Paul Brest( )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Problem Solving, Decision Making, and Professional Judgment: A Guide for Lawyers and Policymakers, Paul Brest and Linda Hamilton Krieger prepare students and professionals to be creative problem solvers, wise counselors, and effective decision makers. The authors provide readers with the essentials of decision theory, probability and statistics, and social and cognitive psychology, and arm them against common sources of judgement error. The ultimate goal is to help readers "get it right" in their roles as professionals and citizens." "Brest and Krieger fill a huge vacuum. Their book is likely to transform the curricula of law schools and public policy schools by providing an excellent text for courses that systematically analyze the crucially important, but hitherto largely neglected, processes by which lawyers and policymakers exercise their judgment. Their multidisciplinary approach is ambitious and rigorous yet clear and accessible. "Dean and Lawrence King Professor of Law, New York University School of Law" ""Brest and Krieger pull off quite a trick here. The book is at once lucid, practical, and intellectually deep. The authors demonstrate admirable sophistication in interpreting the seminal psychological findings, as well as the rational choice inference and decision making models. At the same time, they repeatedly demonstrate how professionals might really improve how they do their work." James C. Gaither Professor of Law and Vice Dean, Stanford Law School"--BOOK JACKET
Processes of constitutional decisionmaking : cases and materials by Paul Brest( Book )

49 editions published between 1975 and 2018 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If there is one theme that runs through this book, it is that the Supreme Court is not the only interpreter of the Constitution, even if it is surely the most obvious and important one for most lawyers. ... Throughout the book, we take seriously constitutional decisionmaking by nonjudicial institutions by including materials ranging from resolutions by the Kentucky and Virginia legislatures in the late eighteenth century, to constitutional interpretations by the President and Congress of the United States, to constitutional assertions by social movements, such as the Seneca Falls Declaration of 1848, to constitutional arguments by particular individuals such as senatorial candidates Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas, the noted abolitionist Frederick Douglass, and civil rights pioneer Pauli Murray. Indeed, far from being the only source of constitutional law, the Supreme Court is not even the only judicial source. In this edition we have included more constitutional arguments by lower federal courts, by state supreme courts ... and even a few references to the constitutions of other countries."--Page xxxiii
