Product Description

Federal Courts: Cases and Materials on Judicial Federalism and the Lawyering Process is the product of the authors' rethinking of what a "Federal Courts" course can be. Although fully attentive to the deeper issues of federalism and separation of powers raised by the cases, its primary focus is on giving students the grounding they will need to be effective lawyer-litigators.

Lawyers are goal-oriented. From their perspective, the American system of judicial federalism is important because it sets up four possible goals: getting into federal court; staying out of federal court; gaining the benefit of federal law; or avoiding the detriment of federal law. This book concentrates on providing the doctrinal and practical education that will enable lawyers to identify and pursue these goals effectively in the service of their clients. Two major themes distinguish this book:
First, the book gives sustained and systematic attention to the role of state courts as a forum for litigation of federal issues.
Second, the book is grounded in the realities of litigation today - in particular, the strong tendency of defendants in civil litigation to prefer federal court over state court. The statutory device of removal, and other issues that dominate contemporary litigation, are addressed throughout this new book.

Federal Courts provides thorough coverage of the public law issues that dominate scholarly writings on federal courts, but it is also uniquely geared to preparing students to serve their clients effectively in the workaday world of private litigation.
