Lesson 1: Inheriting the Fruits of Sin

Can murderers inherit from their victims? This lesson compares the approaches of Jewish and secular law to this audacious claim.

Lesson 2: The Accidental Treasure

Your contractor demolishes a bathroom wall and discovers a rusting lockbox containing cash. Who gets to enjoy this unexpected windfall?

Lesson 3: Burden of Proof

What happens if two people lay claim to the same object but have no witnesses or documents to bolster their claim? Is possession always nine tenths of the law? 

Lesson 4: The Neighbor Advantage

Jewish law dictates that when a property is sold, the neighbors must be given the first option of purchase? Must one sell to a neighbor if there is a higher bidder?

Lesson 5: The Taskmaster

Employees are accorded certain rights and protections that are not granted to independent contractors. But just who is considered an employee?

Lesson 6: The Do-Gooder

If your neighbor’s son mows your laws without asking you first, is he entitled to compensation?  How about someone who decides on his own to pay your debts?
What do you owe a do-gooder?
