Civil Procedure: Rules Statutes and Other Materials 2017 Supplement
A narrative overview opens Civil Procedure: Cases and Problems with a hypothetical case that illustrates each of the major topics in the course. Subsequent chapters are similarly arranged--from finding a court that can obtain jurisdiction over the defendants, to the binding effect of a final judgment. Accessible--not simplified--introductions begin each chapter. Every section starts with relatively easy, rules-based material, and then moves on to more complex and subtle issues. Flexible organization allows chapters to be taught out of sequence. More than 230 up-to-date problems appear both within each section and as more comprehensive problems at the end of each chapter. Lightly edited cases develop first-year students' skills in doctrinal analysis. Here is an integrated approach to covering Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP). The Fourth Edition examines all of the important new Supreme Court decisions dealing with Civil Procedure from the October 2008, 2009, and 2010 terms, including cases on personal jurisdiction, Article III jurisdiction, and class actions. A complete overhaul and reorganization of the pleadings coverage reflects major developments generated by Bell Atlantic v. Twombly and Ashcroft v. Iqbal. Erie materials now include an optional--short version--that is teachable in approximately two class hours or less. Detailed coverage of e-discovery has been added to the chapter on discovery. A revised class action chapter includes thorough coverage of significant judicial opinions issued from the Supreme Court and lower federal courts. Detailed coverage of all amendments to the judicial code as enacted by the Federal Courts Jurisdiction and Venue Clarification Act of 2011 (jurisdiction, removal, venue, and transfer) are provided. The problems have been updated and revised for currency and teaching effectiveness; specifically, more factual details and structure have been added to the problems to make them even more effective teaching tools. The Fourth Edition is available in an e-version as well as print.

Civil Procedure: Rules, Statutes, and Other Materials, 2018 Supplement
The Eleventh Edition of this popular casebook provides a framework for studying both the essential and the cutting-edge issues of civil procedure while incorporating problems that test doctrinal understanding, foster case reading skills, and encourage a sense of litigation strategy. New Supreme Court cases have been integrated that impact personal jurisdiction (McIntyre, Goodyear), subject-matter jurisdiction (Grable, Gunn), pleading (Twombly, Iqbal), joinder (Pimentel), class actions (Dukes), and other important topics, including statutory changes such as the Jurisdiction Clarification Act. The casebook covers all of the major topics that a professor might wish to teach in a first-year course, and can easily be adapted for courses of one- or two-semesters, of different credit hours, and with varied practical or theoretical emphases. A supplement includes all updated Federal Rules, the pleadings in Twombly and Iqbal, a model case file, state materials, and other important teaching tools.
Civil Procedure is written by one of the leading voices on Procedure, Stephen Yeazell, who for this Ninth Edition is joined by his colleague Joanna Schwartz. Yeazell and Schwartz employ a pedagogical style that offers flexible organization at a manageable length. The book gives students a working knowledge of the procedural system and introduces the techniques of statutory analysis. The cases selected are factually interesting and do not involve substantive matters beyond the experience of first-year students. The problems following the cases present real-life issues. Finally, the book incorporates a number of dissenting opinions to dispel the notion that most procedural disputes present clear-cut issues.
With lightly-edited cases, both classic and contemporary, and engaging hypothetical problems, the sixth edition of Civil Procedure: Cases and Problems promotes the analysis and understanding of both governing procedural rules and underlying doctrinal complexities. The casebook also emphasizes the social and economic contexts animating modern procedural problems and reforms as well as the constitutional dynamics underlying federal jurisdiction.
This supplement contains the federal statutes and rules governing procedure, along with comparative state provisions. In some cases, other materials are included, such as notes of advisory committees. The supplement also includes an illustrative problem with sample documents and a litigation flowchart.
This book, which focuses on cases decided in the last decade, differs from similar casebooks in several ways - most notably its extensive use of problems and exercises. Each section includes an Introductory Problem to encourage students to think about the issues, and a review of problems at the end. This approach helps students become comfortable in applying the rules they have learned, and gives them the incentive to look closely at the language of the positive law itself. Exercises throughout encourage students to use their research skills to discover how state procedural standards compare with the federal rules and statutes.
