Contemporary due process cases lead off Civil Procedure: Cases and Problems , creating a conceptual framework for understanding jurisdiction and procedural rules. Coverage of the social and economic issues underlying procedural reform focuses on women, minorities, and the financial constraints on access to the adversary system. The book’s constitutional context sets the groundwork for advanced courses on Procedure and Federal Courts. Lightly edited classic cases promote analysis and preserve the language and subtlety of procedural jurisprudence. Major Supreme Court precedents are followed and complemented by up-to-date lower court decisions. 

The completely updated edition provides detailed coverage of the Supreme Court’s transformation of pleading practice in Bell Atlantic and Iqbal, with analysis of its effect on lower courts and summaries of scholarly criticism. New rulings by the Supreme Court included cover personal jurisdiction, diversity jurisdiction, Erie doctrine, class actions, and arbitration. It also provides extended coverage of new developments in scholarship: e-discovery, complex litigation, and alternative dispute resolution. References to important empirical studies on class actions, the new pleading standard, and access to counsel refresh the text.
