Civil Procedure For All States

Civil Procedure for All States is unique in scope. No other casebook or textbook has sought to take the procedural doctrines that arise in the stages of a civil action and address them for each state. Each chapter describes the majority approach to a procedural doctrine, the significant minority approach, and those states that are peculiar in their approach. By taking this comprehensive approach, the book has been able to identify the common decision-making steps that a lawyer must take in handling any case, in any state. Thus, the book has the student-as-associate thinking through the questions that a seasoned litigator would consider at each stage. The student then applies the law of that student's jurisdiction to the problems that arise at each stage of a case. After resolving questions that sharpen the student's ability to deal with a given procedural issue, each chapter incorporates numerous questions that force the student to wrestle with matters of professionalism and ethics. This book is designed to follow the new Context and Practice Series. Books in the series will feature elements that recent studies of legal pedagogy (Best Practices in Legal Education and the Carnegie Foundation's Educating Lawyers) recommend as essential to improving law school teaching. First, the books will emphasize heavily the practical application of the legal doctrines addressed in each book. Students will be placed in the roles of practitioners handling simulated cases. They will apply the legal doctrines that they learn in the book in exercises that require them to perform tasks that lawyers actually perform. As the studies mentioned above underscore, teaching in this manner will serve more than one purpose. It will not only better prepare students for practice. It will show students the significance of the material they are learning by demonstrating the reality that they will be using these doctrines. Second, the C & P Series will also accomplish another primary goal of the Best Practices and Educating Lawyers studies. That goal is to engage students in professional identity formation so that, when they begin practicing, they will have a better idea of the kind of lawyers they want to be.
