This concise compilation of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the portions of Title 28 of the U.S. Code most pertinent to civil litigation gives today's practitioners a handy resource sized to facilitate quick reference and use on the go. Litigators will find that this volume is easy to bring along as a companion to a deposition, conference, hearing, or trial, providing ready access to desired rules and statutory provisions relevant to the litigation task at hand. Although attorneys may increasingly rely on electronic sources to refer to most legal materials today, accessing the FRCP and Title 28 via smartphones, tablets, and laptops can be more cumbersome than simply opening up this volume and can lack the context that analogue references provide. Additionally, lawyers typically lack access to electronic devices in the formal settings like depositions and trials. As such, this rulebook--which includes a reprint of the U.S. Constitution as well--is an essential part of a litigator's toolkit.

Weissenberger's Michigan Civil Procedure Litigation Manual provides a thorough, yet concise, analysis of the Michigan Court Rules. It is intended to aid the practitioner, judge, and student alike in understanding the operation and application of the Rules in situations that recur throughout the course of litigation. Although this manual is not exhaustive of every procedural issue in Michigan, it is anticipated that it will function both to identify other additional sources on Michigan law as well as to resolve problems frequently engendered by the application of the Rules. Each chapter contains the full text of each Rule in a format that lends itself to easier examination and dissection than any other currently available. Practical commentary on each rule is also provided, as are hundreds of illustrations of possible applications. This publication also includes a list of additional Michigan authorities and a carefully-selected list of leading cases. These cases are intended to serve as starting points for additional research; comprehensive annotations are beyond the scope of this manual. This manual also contains a host of other useful features, including a directory of all clerks of court within the state of Michigan, a note on judicial rulemaking in Michigan, an appellate district map, official forms, and a table used to calculate the number of days between two dates, as well as the full text of the Michigan Rules of Appellate Procedure.

Elements of Case Management is primarily for the use of federal trial judges, legal teams, and American citizens. It provides insights in how a federal trial judge handles his or her cases. Each federal judge must abide by Rule 1 of the Federal Rules of the Civil Procedure that is "to secure the just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of every action." This manual briefly describes techniques that judges have found effective in managing their cases at various stages of the litigation process. It begins with a discussion of the Rule 16 conference, outlining how proper use of this conference enables judges to establish control of cases at the outset. It then provides separate discussions of several items on the Rule 16 agenda covering settlement, discovery, and motions--that continue to play an important role in case management and decision-making. As part of case management, the manual also touches on the pretrial conference, and then the trial itself to propose a foundation for thinking about techniques and methods that will best suit the individual judge.
