Popular with law students, A Student's Guide to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure provides a lucid, up-to-date explanation of all of the major topics in a typical first-year course in civil procedure. Updated and expanded, the guide contains more than 2,000 new citations; it also provides a discussion of procedure after removal of a case from state court, touching on such issues as the time limits for motions to remand, a federal judge's lack of jurisdiction to reconsider remand, and a federal appellate court's lack of jurisdiction to hear an appeal of remand order. The guide also covers such areas of procedure as jurisdiction, venue, the Erie doctrine, forum non conveniens, and res judicata.

Law school can be a joyous, soul-transforming challenge that leads to a rewarding career. It can also be an exhausting, self-limiting trap. It all depends on making smart decisions. When every advantage counts, A Student’s Guide to Law School is like having a personal mentor available at every turn. As a recent graduate and an appellate lawyer, Andrew Ayers knows how high the stakes are—he’s been there, and not only did he survive the experience, he graduated first in his class. In A Student’s Guide to Law School he shares invaluable insight on what it takes to make a successful law school journey. Originating in notes Ayers jotted down while commuting to his first clerkship with then-Judge Sonia Sotomayor, and refined throughout his first years as a lawyer, A Student’s Guide to Law School offers a unique balance of insider’s knowledge and professional advice. Organized in four parts, the first part looks at tests and grades, explaining what’s expected and exploring the seven choices students must make on exam day. The second part discusses the skills needed to be a successful law student, giving the reader easy-to-use tools to analyze legal materials and construct clear arguments. The third part contains advice on how to use studying, class work, and note-taking to find your best path. Finally, Ayers closes with a look beyond the classroom, showing students how the choices they make in law school will affect their career—and even determine the kind of lawyer they become. The first law school guide written by a recent top-ranked graduate, A Student’s Guide to Law School is relentlessly practical and thoroughly relevant to the law school experience of today’s students. With the tools and advice Ayers shares here, students can make the most of their investment in law school, and turn their valuable learning experiences into a meaningful career.

Text of the Rules, Title 28, and Constitution: A Student's Guide supplies what your students need--the text of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (as amended through December 1, 2017), the frequently-consulted sections of the U.S. Judiciary Code, and the text (with revision history) of the U.S. Constitution. This is where most Rules Supplements available to students stop, with just an austere reprinting of these texts. PLUS... Student-Friendly Orientation to Each Rule: But what students often find challenging in studying Civil Procedure--and what is less likely to be found in either a casebook or a conventional study aid--is an understanding of how each Rule "fits" into the master scheme of federal civil practice generally. This edition of A Student's Guide offers students that very guidance. Two features (new in this edition) now follow the text of each Rule: "How This Rule Fits In" explains for students the context of each Rule and the role each plays in federal civil practice, and "The Architecture of this Rule" which helps students unpack those Rules that are especially long and confusing. These two features guide students in contextualizing and making sense out of the Rules at a Rule-by-Rule level. PLUS... Rule-Specific Functions and Nuances: Students often struggle to appreciate how the theory of a Rule operates in practice. A Student's Guide addresses that concern by supplying a final feature to each Rule discussion - "How this Rule Works in Practice" - designed to help students understand each Rule's function, subpart by subpart, and the real-world, practical applications and nuances of each subpart in practice. PLUS... Citations to Interpretative Case Law: Also unlike most other Rules Supplements, A Student's Guide provides students with select, leading interpretative case law analyzing the Rules and their subparts. This, then, converts this text into a "finding aid" of sorts, as students work through applied problems in the context of the Rules. PLUS... An Overview of Companion Federal Practice Concepts: Because many of the related core concepts of federal practice are an amalgam of law found in Rules, statutes, constitutional provisions, and case law, A Student's Guide bridges that gulf with quick, orienting discussions of central practice concepts like personal jurisdiction, subject-matter jurisdiction, removal, venue, forum non conveniens, the Erie Doctrine, and claim and issue preclusion. These distillations allow students to acquire a broad view of those related practice contexts. PLUS... A Handy Overview of Federal Appellate Practice: This edition of A Student's Guide also includes the text of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, introduced by a student-friendly overview of federal appellate practice. PLUS... A Helpful Orientation to the Rulemaking Process: A Student's Guide also includes a brief orientation for students to the process of federal rulemaking, how the Rules originally came into existence, and how they are amended.

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.

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.

This book is designed for an introductory period class for the 1L year or as an introduction to a course in civil procedure. A Civil Matter chronicles Neely v. Fox of Oak Ridge and Benjamin Curd, a personal injury/negligence action in a federal district court resulting from a rear-end automobile collision. The book uses the lawsuit to introduce students to the civil litigation process, covering the basics of civil procedure from jurisdiction through pleading, discovery, motion practice, and trial. Importantly, there are hyperlinks throughout the book to rules of procedure, case law, and the pleadings and documents that make up the court docket. So, for example, when reading about the parties initiating the lawsuit, the reader can access, by hyperlink, the rules involved as well as the actual complaint that was filed in the action. The chapters contain questions for students to answer by reviewing the linked documents, causing them to conduct a review of the entire docket sheet and its contents as well as relevant case law, statutes, and rules. This process should enhance students' understanding of the context and content of a civil lawsuit governed by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

The Revised 4th Edition of Civil Procedure: A Contemporary Approach is updated with references to the impending 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, as well as case law developments since the 2014 publication date of the Fourth Edition. Major recent case law developments included in this revised edition consist of decisions from the Supreme Court addressing personal jurisdiction (Goodyear Dunlop Tires Operations, S.A. v. Brown, 131 S. Ct. 2846 (2011), J. McIntyre Machinery, Ltd. v. Nicastro, 131 S. Ct. 2780 (2011), and Daimler AG v. Bauman, 134 S. Ct. 746 (2014)), federal question jurisdiction (Gunn v. Minton, 133 S. Ct. 1059 (2013)), removal of class actions (Standard Fire Ins. Co. v. Knowles, 133 S. Ct. 1345 (2013)), change of venue and forum-selection clauses (Atl. Marine Constr. Co., Inc. v. U.S. Dist. Court for W. Dist. of Texas, 134 S. Ct. 568 (2013) [now a principal case]), class certification (Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes, 131 S. Ct. 2541 (2011), Comcast Corp. v. Behrend, 133 S. Ct. 1426 (2013), Amgen Inc. v. Conn. Ret. Plans & Trust Funds, 133 S. Ct. 1184 (2013)), class arbitration waivers (AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion, 131 S. Ct. 1740 (2011) and American Express Co. v. Italian Colors Restaurant, 133 S. Ct. 2304 (2013)), and offers of judgment (Genesis HealthCare Corp. v. Symczyk, 133 S. Ct. 1523 (2013)). Regarding the impending 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, this revised edition makes reference to them in the text where appropriate. The changes include the "Duke Rules" package, which alters Rules 1, 4, 16, 26, 30, 31, 33 and 34 to make proportionality a main component of the scope of discovery, to eliminate access to subject matter discovery, require early discussions regarding preservation and privilege protection, permit early document requests, and shorten the time permitted to issue scheduling orders and to achieve service of process. The amendment to Rule 37 codifies an approach to preservation and spoliation that favors curative measures unless there is intentional spoliation, in which case more severe sanctions such as adverse inference instructions or dismissal become available. This edition also fully incorporates recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and to Title 28 of the U.S. Code, including the Federal Courts Jurisdiction and Venue Clarification Act of 2011 and the 2013 amendment to Rule 45 (subpoenas). Finally, the Revised Fourth Edition integrates references to online assessment tools in the Casebook Plus platform. These consist of a bank of 200 multiple-choice questions that provide comprehensive assessment of the topics covered in this book, with detailed feedback consisting of explanations for both correct and incorrect responses. This feature provides an unparalleled opportunity to engage with the material actively as the course progresses and permits students and professors to determine the extent to which the material is being learned.
