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.

Pleadings Without Tears has become established as one of the most successful books on practical legal drafting in the context of litigation. This new eighth edition is fully updated to take account of Civil Procedure Rule (CPR) changes since the last edition.

It focuses on core skills and fundamental rules while clearly addressing each stage of the process and goes beyond a straightforward setting out of the precedents and authorities relevant to statements of case. It gives clear examples of how to set out relevant matters with clarity and precision and encourages the reader to give full consideration to concise and clear identification of the subject matter of the action, the issues of the case and the parties' respective positions in respect to those issues. With a wealth of practical examples and anecdotes - and illustrated throughout with cartoons - the light and entertaining style, combined with detailed analysis and explanation, enables the reader to easily acquire a good understanding of drafting.

Students deem Civil Procedure to be one of the hardest classes in law school for good reason. Doctrines from personal jurisdiction to res judicata are difficult to apply to exam fact patterns, and the policies underlying the federal rules can be difficult to grasp. The course is a complex hybrid of common law, statutes, rules, and some constitutional doctrine. For the first time, Oxford University Press equips students with an accessible guide to acing this most challenging of law school tests. In Civil Procedure: Model Problems and Outstanding Answers, Scott Dodson helps students demonstrate their knowledge of civil procedure in the structured and sophisticated manner that professors expect on law school exams. This book includes clear introductions to the major topics in civil procedure, provides hypotheticals that students can expect to see on an exam, and offers model answers to those hypotheticals. Professor Dodson then gives students the opportunity to evaluate their own work with a comprehensive self-analysis section. This book prepares students by challenging them to use the law they learn in class while also explaining the best way to express an answer on law school exams. This second edition has been updated to reflect recent changes to the federal rules of civil procedure. It incorporates new paradigm cases, including Wal-Mart, Goodyear, and McIntyre. The second edition also reflects the new rule and statutory amendments, including the Federal Courts Jurisdictions and Venue Clarification Act of 2011.

Civil Procedure in Focus uses a combination of accessible explanatory text, cases, and other primary legal sources to teach civil procedure, and then provides opportunities to apply the law to multiple sets of facts in every chapter. Instead of using the “hide the ball” approach of traditional casebooks, selected cases illustrate key changes in the law and show how courts develop and apply doctrine. The approachable manner of this casebook provides a comfortable experiential environment that is essential to student success. With this new text, students apply concepts to real-world scenarios. Simply knowing the facts of a benchmark case is not enough: knowing how to apply the doctrine in a case to a different set of facts enhances a student’s ability to succeed after law school. Key Benefits: Case Previews and Post-Case Follow-Ups. To succeed, law students must know how to deconstruct and analyze cases. Case Previews highlight the legal concepts in a case before the student reads it. Post-Case Follow-Ups summarize the important points and go one step further—noting the significance of a case to current law as well as its later ramifications. Real Life Applications. Every case in a chapter is followed by Real Life Applications, which present a series of questions based on a scenario similar to the facts in the case. Real Life Applications challenge students to apply what they have learned and help prepare them for real-world practice. Professors can use Real Life Applications to spark class discussions or provide them as individual short-answer assignments. Applying the Concepts and Civil Procedure in Practice. These end-of-chapter exercises encourage students to synthesize the chapter material and apply relevant legal doctrine and code to real-world scenarios. Students can use these exercises for self-assessment or the professor can use them to promote class interaction.
