Humbach (law, Pace University School of Law) presents a 1987 case regarding disputed ownership of a painting by French Impressionist Claude Monet, as a way for beginning law students to understand how the American legal system works, become familiar with basic concepts of civil litigation, and gain experience reading and briefing cases and deciphering case files. Readers are exposed to a variety of materials, including judicial opinions, litigation papers, and selections from commentators. Fictional material has been added to the actual case in order to incorporate information on jury trials. As the author notes, "For the sake of easier readability, these textual modifications (which occur mainly in the opinions' introductory and conclusory paragraphs) have generally not been indicated. Other than introducing the jury trial and related trial-level motions, the procedural course and substantive outcomes in the case follow the original." There is no subject index.
