Overview

The fourth edition, written by respected scholars and experienced educators, includes both classic and new materials. The book presents traditional topics in historical and empirical context, and it adds new and provocative materials as well as relevant theoretical and background readings. The procedural and nonprocedural aspects of the cases are thought-provoking, to hold students’ interest. Each chapter contains a well-written introduction, cases, and clear explanations of the doctrine, supported by comments and questions which deepen students’ understanding and clarify key concepts. The book includes more than forty well-crafted problems (both for class use and review) to help students solidify their understanding of the materials either in class or as out-of-class assignments. In-class exercises and simulations based on two sample case files are integrated throughout. Pleadings, memoranda, transcripts, exhibits, motions, and more – all taken from real cases – appear in the Appendix. Civil Procedure: Doctrine, Practice, and Context consistently emphasizes the skills and values of lawyering as it offers a consideration of social responsibility. At approximately 1,300 pages, it is designed for civil procedure courses of any length, and a revised detailed Teacher’s Manual is geared to be useful for both new and experienced instructors.

The Fourth Edition has been updated throughout.
