This casebook is the concise, and very modern, version of a respected classic of civil procedure casebooks. The key to its brevity is its efficient and systematic step-by-step survey of the subject in Part One, which provides a tight 270-page comprehensive treatment of current civil procedure. The survey suffices to give the students a complete and solid grounding in civil procedure by means of the cases, commentaries, text, and questions that progress from pretrial and settlement to trial, judgment, appeal, jurisdiction, and complex litigation. This brief yet thorough coverage leaves time for in-depth treatment of a few selected problem areas regarding the system's fundamental structure in Part Two on governing law, Part Three on authority to adjudicate, and Part Four on res judicata. The twelfth edition has been thoroughly updated. It covers major new cases on general and specific personal jurisdiction and on pleading, and it introduces new materials on the res judicata effect of statute-of-limitations dismissals. It also fully incorporates the new amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which affect such important topics as discovery.

This book is a collaborative effort by fourteen law-school professors to provide a deeper understanding of the great civil procedure cases. The professors each wrote a short chapter on one of the cases, retelling the cases in their own voice and by their own method. Each chapter has a fairly consistent structure, with separate sections on: social and legal background of the case; factual background of the case; lower court proceedings in the case; final appellate disposition, including issues, decisions, reasons, and separate opinions; factual postscript to the case; immediate impact of the case on the development of the law (why the case is famous and when it became so); and continuing importance of the case today (why it is still a leading case).The accompanying website, http://civprostories.law.cornell.edu, serves as a research tool for students, academics, and practitioners.

This book, which focuses on cases decided in the last decade, differs from similar casebooks in several ways - most notably its extensive use of problems and exercises. Each section includes an Introductory Problem to encourage students to think about the issues, and a review of problems at the end. This approach helps students become comfortable in applying the rules they have learned, and gives them the incentive to look closely at the language of the positive law itself. Exercises throughout encourage students to use their research skills to discover how state procedural standards compare with the federal rules and statutes.

This title is a part of our CasebookPlus(tm) offering as ISBN 9781634601658. Learn more at CasebookPlus.com. This popular casebook, through the selection of classic and modern cases, provides an excellent tool for teaching students the common law foundations of the criminal law and modern statutory reform, including the Model Penal Code. Along the way, the casebook considers modern controversies (e.g., "shaming" punishment, capital punishment, broadening sexual assault law, self-defense by battered women, euthanasia, the role of culture in determining culpability), and creatively uses literature (e.g., examining insanity through Edgar Allen Poe's The-Tell Tale Heart) and even "brain teasers" to confront (as the Preface states) "the Big Questions . . . that philosophers, theologians, scientists, and poets, as well as lawyers, have grappled with for centuries." The Seventh Edition, as in the past, includes new cases, as well as updates in the notes that bring current issues of criminal law to the fore. New Power Points have been added to the casebook companion website. For more information and additional teaching materials, visit the companion site.

The Civil Procedure book in our Developing Professional Skills series -- used as a supplement to your regular text book -- makes it easy to integrate skills training into the civil procedure classroom. The book contains ten exercises designed to develop practice skills of legal drafting, client interviewing and counseling, negotiation, and advocacy. Students spend a manageable one to two hours on tasks including: interviewing a client and then drafting a short complaint; preparing an outline of key arguments supporting a motion to dismiss; negotiating the "clawback" of an inadvertently disclosed document; and drafting a statement of undisputed facts to support a summary judgment motion. Realistic pleadings, discovery, and other documents from the case file are included throughout the book. A comprehensive Teacher's Manual provides guidance and suggestions for expanding the classroom discussion to include professional responsibility concepts and the norms of modern legal practice.
