Updated to include the latest amendments and proposals, this statutory supplement provides the clearest and most useful collection of statutes and rules for courses in civil procedure-even including a sample set of local rules. The Supplement's unique organizational structure presents much information, but manages to do so without sacrificing a clean and usable presentation of the rules. A clever system of annotation succinctly explains amendments, and a separate presentation of the advisory committee notes now grouped by rule allows inclusion of red-lined versions of the rules, thus making the notes easy to understand and enabling reconstruction of the versions formerly in effect. This presentation reflects the fact that advisory committee notes are as important to a theoretical study of civil procedure as to a doctrinal or practical approach.

This classic civil procedure casebook begins with a detailed overview, thus providing students with a solid and complete grounding in the subject, before proceeding to in-depth coverage of the major problem areas. It is highly versatile and can serve the most profound of civil procedure courses as well as a modern compact course allotted as few as three semester hours. Thanks to its flexible structure, it also fosters diverse teaching methods. The twelfth edition retains prior editions' range and depth of coverage, while reflecting a thorough rewriting for improved flow and clarity. It covers major new cases on general and specific personal jurisdiction, pleading, and summary judgment, and it introduces new materials on the res judicata effect of statute-of-limitations dismissals and the theory of burdens and standards of proof. It also fully incorporates the new amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which affect such important topics as discovery. Finally, it brings a proven "Stories" approach to the presentation of the major cases' backgrounds.

Widely used in law schools, the first edition of Starting Off Right in Law School prepared new law students to excel in doctrinal courses. The second edition has been updated to prepare students both for the broader demands of doctrinal courses and for the more distinct reading and writing demands of legal writing courses. Equipped with many example cases, the book helps new law students determine which details of the case are important for doctrinal courses and which are more pertinent to legal writing courses; it also teaches students how to adapt their writing style to the requirements of each course. Chapters describe what different types of lawyers do, how they interact with clients and in courtrooms, and how students can effectively read cases, outline, and apply what they have learned on the exams. This book is the perfect tool for pre-law students to read on their own or for law school orientation required reading.

This well-established treatise is premised on the assumption that the key to understanding the principles of civil procedure is to know why: why the principles were created and why they are invoked. The treatise is written to answer these questions as it lays out the basic principles of civil procedure. It also reflects the authors' belief that students of civil procedure can understand and appreciate complex principles when they are clearly presented; teaching civil procedure does not require dumbing it down. The authors use the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure as a model, but they also refer to different state rules and doctrines where appropriate in order to present a representative cross-section of state models. Although they discuss important civil procedure cases in the text, thus supporting the most widely used civil procedure casebooks using these same cases, they also provide useful references to secondary sources and illustrative cases for the reader who wants to explore further.

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.
