comprehensive coverage of major federal courts topics that includes all of the relevant statutes, rules, and constitutional provisions
advanced treatment of topics covered in other courses (for example, subject matter jurisdiction and the Erie doctrine)
a hypothetical problem at the front of each chapter that illustrates many of the important issues addressed in the chapter
principal cases that tie into the exposition and illuminate doctrine
clear and concise writing that puts doctrinal concepts within students’ reach without oversimplifying or ignoring the richness and complexity of the Federal Courts’ doctrine
problems integrated throughout each chapter that reinforce and deepen students’ understanding of doctrine
generous use of charts and diagrams to facilitate and support different approaches to learning and teaching
