The book presents a variety of materials illuminating the similarities and differences between federal and state court practices (e.g., materials on court structure, judicial selection, case assignments, pleadings, compelled joinder, compelled discovery or disclosure, jury trial rights, appellate review, and issue preclusion). Professor Parness' experience has shown that the contrast tends to prompt lively class discussion of appropriate policies.
To bring key concepts into focus, there are over 100 review Problems. The Problems allow you to choose where more significant class time is spent, adaptable from year to year, depending on student interests, current events, and the like.
