From birth certificates and marriage licenses to food safety regulations and speed limits, law shapes nearly every moment of our lives. Ubiquitous and ambivalent, the law is charged with both maintaining social order and protecting individual freedom. In this book, Cynthia L. Cates and Wayne V. McIntosh explore this ambivalence and document the complex relationship between the web of law and everyday life. They consider the forms and functions of the law, charting the American legal structure and judicial process, and explaining key legal roles. They then detail how it influences the development of individual identity and human relationships at every stage of our life cycle, from conception to the grave. The authors also use the word qwebq in its technological sense, providing a section at the end of each chapter that directs students to relevant and useful Internet sites. Written for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in law and society courses, qLaw and the Web of Societyq contains original research that also makes it useful to scholars. In daring to ask difficult questions such as qWhen does life begin?q and qWhere does law begin?q this book will stimulate thought and debate even as it presents practical answers.California is the only state that currently accepts the study of law by correspondence as a means of qualifying for the bar ... of applicants accepted as full-time ID. students in the fall . . . entering class (10 percent)aquot; (U.S. News and World Report 1998). 8. ... a professor of law and philosophy at the University of Texas School of Law, created a aquot;Ranking of U.S. Law Schools ...
