Federal Rules of Civil Procedure: 2017-2018 Statutory Supplement with Resources for Study
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.
Preparing for Practice is a fresh approach to the 1L first semester legal writing and research course, designed to guide students through their development of the essential skills needed to master the MPT section of the bar exam and learn legal analysis and writing from a practice perspective. The coursebook combines practice-oriented case files with theoretical content, eliminating the need for professors to create their own case files.

Using the Socratic method, Civil Procedure: Theory and Practice, Fifth Edition helps students develop strategic, critical thinking with introductory text, examples, and hypotheticals that equip them for the challenges of practice. Sophisticated, yet straightforward, the text strikes an important balance by providing clear exposition while requiring work to achieve deeper insights. An opening chapter gives an overview of the entire process, using real pleadings and discovery materials in the landmark N.Y. Times v. Sullivan case. The innovative “Anatomy of a Litigation” case study chapter systematically leads students from pleadings to verdict, using leading cases to deepen the connection between the classroom and the courtroom. Civil Procedure: Theory and Practice covers the full range of topics, including in-depth treatment of personal and subject-matter jurisdiction, joinder, preclusion, and alternative dispute resolution.
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.
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, 2017 Statutory Supplement With Advisory Committee Notes, Selected Provisions of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, Selected Federal Statutes, the Federal Rule of Evidence, the United States Constitution, and Supplementary Cases, Notes, and Other Materials
Civil Procedure: A Coursebook provides solid scholarship but does not hide the ball. The book’s accessibility, organization, and interior design support its innovative pedagogy. New to the Third Edition: Recent (Dec. 1, 2015) rule amendments abrogate the federal forms and make important changes to the discovery rules. This edition reflects both sets of changes and includes provocative new materials on the revitalized proportionality standard of discovery and the ethical requirements for competency in electronic discovery, in addition to other smaller updates.
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure: 2016-2017 Statutory Supplement with Resources for Study
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.

Civil Procedure: Cases and Problems, Fifth Edition covers all topics in the first-year canon of civil procedure, and some topics in advanced litigation classes (e.g., class actions, appeals). The casebook is organized with the reality and complexities of civil litigation in mind, and follows the litigation sequence, from pleading through preclusion. Each chapter takes a practical as well as analytical approach, through (a) a series of Supreme Court and lower court opinions, (b) notes preceding and following those opinions intended to explain the underlying doctrines and principles behind them, and (c) problems intended to assess and refine students understanding of doctrines and their rationales. Ultimately, this casebook demands that students read carefully and at a detailed level, analyze critically, and apply the law from the perspective of the theories underlying the various doctrines. It provides an effective vehicle through which to teach legal analysis and to gently nudge students forward and deeper into the materials.
