Massaro, both scholars of national reputation, taking a one-step-at-a-time approach to building on introductory material to reach more sophisticated topics
  • distinctive progressive sensibilty integrating women and minorities in all roles of the civil procedure system

  • a new section addresses jurisdiction in cyberspace, and notes explain what the technological revolution means to civil procedure
  • the latest on Rule 11 practice and the mandating 'voluntary discovery'
