Dear Prospective Examinee:

Welcome to the exciting world of Customs!  Customs Broker is a licensed profession.  Passing the Customs Broker Examination is a prerequisite for individual’s Customs Broker license.  Passing is not easy, and many exam takers do not pass.  The primary challenge lies not in the difficulty of questions themselves, but in the amount of time customs examiners allocate to examinees.  My interaction with students with little or no customs experience shows that everyone is able to understand some of the most difficult questions.  This means it is not the difficulty of questions, but rather the amount of time provided, which leads many not to pass.  The problem, therefore, lies in time management!  Fortunately, this can be corrected.  But such correction requires dedication and practice.  Many questions you will see on exam are similar to those questions asked in previous exams.  Some are even identical.  Examinee who sees a familiar question on the exam is likely to spend less time to answering it.  This means more time being left to answer more difficult and less familiar questions, resulting in a greater likelihood of success. 

Exercise Book is designed to do just that: to help examinees pass the Customs Broker Exam.  The approach is very simple.  We take the very questions that examiners have asked before, and provide rationale for their answers.  The rationale - or reasoning - cause examinees to revisit topics tested while providing the structure and organization.  The structure helps to build a framework that can be applied to variety of questions.  During the exam, even if examinee does not recall the structure, the familiarity with the question would help.  Exercise Book consists of: Table of Contents; Table of Questions; Table of Topics; Approach to Answering Questions; Practice Exam Questions; and Practice Exam Answers.  Exercise Book is supplemented with video discussions and supplemental reading on the internet, through Web Supplements at LawCustoms.com/eb.

In this fifth edition of his bestselling classic, Jay Feinman provides an authoritative and up-to-date overview of the American legal system. In the years since the publication of the fourth edition, there have been many important developments on the legal front. The Supreme Court has issued important decisions on presidential powers, freedom of religion, and personal liberty. Police shootings and the rise of Black Lives Matter has impacted the court system too. The rise of arbitration at the expense of jury trials has affected the rights of consumers, and internet law remains in a state of constant change. This fully updated fifth edition of Law 101 accounts for all these developments and more, as Feinman once again provides a clear introduction to American law. The book covers all the main subjects taught in the first year of law school, and discusses every facet of the American legal tradition, including constitutional law, the litigation process, and criminal, property, and contracts law. To illustrate how the legal system works, Feinman draws from noteworthy, infamous, and even outrageous examples and cases. We learn about the case involving scalding coffee that cost McDonald's half a million dollars, the murder trial in Victorian London that gave us the legal definition of insanity, and the epochal decision of Marbury vs. Madison that gave the Supreme Court the power to declare state and federal law unconstitutional. A key to learning about the law is understanding legal vocabulary, and Feinman helps by clarifying terms like "due process" and "equal protection," as well as by drawing distinctions between terms like "murder" and "manslaughter." Above all, Feinman reveals to readers of all kinds that despite its complexities and quirks, the law can be understood by everyone. Perfect for students contemplating law school, journalists covering legislature, or even casual fans of "court-television" shows, Law 101 is a clear and accessible introduction to the American legal system.
