Product Description

Civil Procedure: Cases and Problems, covers all topics in the first-year canon of civil procedure, and some topics in advanced litigation classes (e.g., class actions, appeals). The casebook is organized with the reality and complexities of civil litigation in mind, and follows the litigation sequence, from pleading through preclusion. Each chapter takes a practical as well as analytical approach, through (a) a series of Supreme Court and lower court opinions, (b) notes preceding and following those opinions intended to explain the underlying doctrines and principles behind them, and (c) problems intended to assess and refine students’ understanding of doctrines and their rationales. Ultimately, this casebook demands that students read carefully and at a detailed level, analyze critically, and apply the law from the perspective of the theories underlying the various doctrines. It provides an effective vehicle through which to teach legal analysis and to gently nudge students forward and deeper into the materials. 

Key Features:

  • New co-author Simona Grossi (a tenured professor at Loyola Law School), whose background in both the common law and civil law tradition has added novel ideas and a fresh approach to this edition
  • New materials have been added, presentations have been reorganized and streamlined, and some materials have been set aside or replaced. Most importantly, the authors have tested these new materials in the classroom and modified them according to their effectiveness as a teaching tool
  • A new Chapter I introduces students to “the claim” and to the multifaceted role the claim plays in the law of procedure
  • Several of the chapters have been significantly revamped, e.g., those on personal jurisdiction and subject matter jurisdiction
  • Parts of other chapters have been rewritten to make them more teachable
