Text of the Rules, Title 28, and Constitution: A Student's Guide supplies what your students need--the text of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (as amended through December 1, 2017), the frequently-consulted sections of the U.S. Judiciary Code, and the text (with revision history) of the U.S. Constitution. This is where most Rules Supplements available to students stop, with just an austere reprinting of these texts. PLUS... Student-Friendly Orientation to Each Rule: But what students often find challenging in studying Civil Procedure--and what is less likely to be found in either a casebook or a conventional study aid--is an understanding of how each Rule "fits" into the master scheme of federal civil practice generally. This edition of A Student's Guide offers students that very guidance. Two features (new in this edition) now follow the text of each Rule: "How This Rule Fits In" explains for students the context of each Rule and the role each plays in federal civil practice, and "The Architecture of this Rule" which helps students unpack those Rules that are especially long and confusing. These two features guide students in contextualizing and making sense out of the Rules at a Rule-by-Rule level. PLUS... Rule-Specific Functions and Nuances: Students often struggle to appreciate how the theory of a Rule operates in practice. A Student's Guide addresses that concern by supplying a final feature to each Rule discussion - "How this Rule Works in Practice" - designed to help students understand each Rule's function, subpart by subpart, and the real-world, practical applications and nuances of each subpart in practice. PLUS... Citations to Interpretative Case Law: Also unlike most other Rules Supplements, A Student's Guide provides students with select, leading interpretative case law analyzing the Rules and their subparts. This, then, converts this text into a "finding aid" of sorts, as students work through applied problems in the context of the Rules. PLUS... An Overview of Companion Federal Practice Concepts: Because many of the related core concepts of federal practice are an amalgam of law found in Rules, statutes, constitutional provisions, and case law, A Student's Guide bridges that gulf with quick, orienting discussions of central practice concepts like personal jurisdiction, subject-matter jurisdiction, removal, venue, forum non conveniens, the Erie Doctrine, and claim and issue preclusion. These distillations allow students to acquire a broad view of those related practice contexts. PLUS... A Handy Overview of Federal Appellate Practice: This edition of A Student's Guide also includes the text of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, introduced by a student-friendly overview of federal appellate practice. PLUS... A Helpful Orientation to the Rulemaking Process: A Student's Guide also includes a brief orientation for students to the process of federal rulemaking, how the Rules originally came into existence, and how they are amended.

The overarching objective of A Student's Guide to Hearsay is to help students sort out the complexities of the hearsay rule, its exceptions, and the Sixth Amendment Confrontation Clause. For each exception, this book: • Outlines the policies underlying the exception; • Lists and explains the requirements that must be satisfied for evidence to be admitted under the exception; • Explains additional issues that have arisen or are likely to arise; • Explains how the rule interacts with other rules ; • Discusses tactical and procedural considerations that must be understood to appreciate how the rule plays in court; and • Provides review questions and answers that allow students to test their understanding and applications of the rules. The book also includes humorous references addressing the hearsay significance of a ham sandwich, Humpty Dumpty, the Greek god of wine, Tim McGraw, dog saliva, Derek Jeter, a squeaky boot, Leonardo DiCaprio, the French Army, the speed of sound, Commander Data, and the Chicago Cubs. The 4th edition is based on the text of the restyled Federal Rules of Evidence that will become effective December 1, 2011. It includes a detailed discussion of every Supreme Court Confrontation Clause decision from Crawford to Bryant, and also discusses the Bullcoming case which the Court will probably decide sometime this year. It includes a link to the author's web page on which updates to the Guide will be posted.

Students studying evidence in California learn the Federal Rules of Evidence (FRE) and the California Evidence Code (CEC). Most California evidence professors test on both sets of rules. In particular, professors test the differences between the FRE and the CEC. Upon graduation, the essay and performance portions of the California State Bar Exam test the FRE and the CEC. As in school, the bar often emphasizes differences between the two sets of evidence rules. This book highlights the similarities and differences between the FRE and the CEC. The book covers the evidence rules you encounter in law school and on the bar. The book is unique in the amount of attention focused on preparing students for evidence questions in law school and on the bar. In addition to clearly written, concise text describing the many aspects of evidence law, the book contains numerous practice exams, including law school exams, California bar exam questions, analysis of exam questions, model answers, and multiple choice questions (and answers). The book has two goals: First, equip students to excel in the law school course on evidence (and the trial advocacy course), and Second, prepare students for the California Bar Exam.

Organized in four parts, the first part looks at tests and grades, explaining what’s expected and exploring the seven choices students must make on exam day.

The third part contains advice on how to use studying, class work, and note-taking to find your best path. Finally, Ayers closes with a look beyond the classroom, showing students how the choices they make in law school will affect their career—and even determine the kind of lawyer they become.

Learning Civil Procedure provides a broad, student-centered, user-friendly approach to civil procedure that is both clear and sophisticated. Students build mastery of the material through the presentation of examples and analyses. Students then move on to involved problems similar to what they will encounter on final examinations, bar examinations, and as lawyers. The book makes great use of problems to facilitate dialogue in class and correspondingly uses many fewer case excerpts than does the typical casebook. Students will emerge as competent and culturally literate lawyers because the book also includes the core "canon" of civil procedure opinions as well as sufficient historical background. Learning Civil Procedure is a book designed by authors who both teach and litigate, making it the perfect tool for ensuring that students are ready for the classroom, the bar exam, and real-world litigation practice.

This book is designed for an introductory period class for the 1L year or as an introduction to a course in civil procedure. A Civil Matter chronicles Neely v. Fox of Oak Ridge and Benjamin Curd, a personal injury/negligence action in a federal district court resulting from a rear-end automobile collision. The book uses the lawsuit to introduce students to the civil litigation process, covering the basics of civil procedure from jurisdiction through pleading, discovery, motion practice, and trial. Importantly, there are hyperlinks throughout the book to rules of procedure, case law, and the pleadings and documents that make up the court docket. So, for example, when reading about the parties initiating the lawsuit, the reader can access, by hyperlink, the rules involved as well as the actual complaint that was filed in the action. The chapters contain questions for students to answer by reviewing the linked documents, causing them to conduct a review of the entire docket sheet and its contents as well as relevant case law, statutes, and rules. This process should enhance students' understanding of the context and content of a civil lawsuit governed by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

The primary purpose of this book is to dispel some misunderstandings -- or even erroneous views -- on what a ''code'' is and, more specifically, how one can work with a ''civil code.'' The text explains that in a civil law system, codification is the product of the combination of three sources of law: legislation, jurisprudence or court cases, and doctrine or legal scholarship. It then analyzes the many different methods of reasoning and interpretation that can be used under a civil code and illustrates these methods as applied to code articles and to three decisions of the Louisiana Supreme Court. Thus, the book explains and justifies the 'long lasting life'' of civil codes, particularly the French Civil Code of 1804 (also referred to as the Code Napoleon) and the Louisiana Civil Code of 1825.

Every student who wants to succeed in the global economy should study abroad. It is one of the most valuable things you can do for yourself and your career. Each of us has lived and worked both in the United States and overseas, working extensively with both students and employers in a variety of business, academic and not-for-profit settings in our own careers. Stacie Nevadomski Berdan is a seasoned global executive, an expert on international careers, and an award-winning author on how to succeed in the global marketplace. Sir Cyril Taylor has been an innovator in study abroad for nearly 50 years, having founded the American Institute For Foreign Study (AIFS) in 1964, and Richmond, The American International University in London in 1972. As the president and CEO of the Institute of International Education, Allan Goodman is a leader in creating and expanding international educational exchange opportunities, and making them more accessible to more diverse student populations. He was previously a professor and the executive dean of the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, teaching students who are now in diplomatic leadership positions around the globe. Together, we and our organizations have advised and supported hundreds of thousands of students over the years to gain an international experience, and we continue to advocate for more students going abroad. We have seen firsthand the value of making international a part of one’s education and of listening to others when it comes to adapting to life in another country. We have all felt culture shock and also re-entry problems, and we have seen the impact of an international experience on those who have been fortunate enough to have one. But we realize that not every student knows where to start and how to make it happen. So we teamed up to reach students like you, who are still exploring whether and how to study abroad, and wondering if they should do it. The answer is a resounding “yes”—but only after you have prepared yourself to take full advantage of the opportunity. We wrote this book to give every student access to the best information available on study abroad—things to know before you go, how to make the most of your time abroad, why you should consider internships and career-related experiences abroad, how to transition back to life in the States, and, as you embark on your career, how to use study abroad to showcase your global growth and learning. To bring you current, relevant advice, we surveyed approximately 350 students and asked dozens of educators and business leaders to share their insights. In addition to our own best advice from years of working in international education and communications, we aim to offer you timely and practical feedback from the current generation of students who have made the most of their time abroad. Therefore, we have included more than 200 real-life stories from a diverse collection of students, advisers and professionals, as well as 100 easy-to-follow tips to help guide you through the process. The wide range of programs currently available makes study abroad more flexible, affordable and accessible than ever before. While not everyone can go abroad for a full year in a total language immersion setting, we hope you will agree after reading this book that there is a study abroad option for everyone. We urge you to make international a part of your education.
