9780735509535: An Illustrated Guide to Civil Procedure, Second Edition (Aspen Coursebook)

An Illustrated Guide to the Rules of Civil Procedure explores the procedural rules covered in a one or two-semester course through a realistic but hypothetical age discrimination case. Students work with the rules as the case carries them from the client intake, through trial, and ultimately to the resolution of the case. Notes, questions, exercises, tips, maps, and illustrations contribute to a dynamic learning environment; one in which students actively participate by making strategic and tactical litigation decisions and by reviewing and critiquing complaints, answers, motions, and discovery papers.

Updated to match the 2007 re-styling of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the Second Edition reflects all of the changes to the Rules as well as the recent Supreme Court decisions relevant to topics covered in An Illustrated Guide to the Rules of Civil Procedure.

Invaluable as a required supplement or outside reference source, An Illustrated Guide to the Rules of Civil Procedure presents:

  • a realistic hypothetical case that exemplifies the rules that pertain to pleadings, motions, discovery, joinder, pretrial disposition, and trial as well as issues of jurisdiction, Erie, Rule 11, and case management
  • a host of pedagogical feature
    • Rule References at the start of each chapter that cite all rules used in that chapter
    • Litigation Documents that exemplify documentation of most of the topics covered in Civil Procedure
    • Tasks that engage the student in both prosecution and defense
    • Question Sets in each chapter
    • Tactical Tips that offer tidbits of litigation wisdom
    • succinct Notes that convey important information
    • Tables throughout the book that organize procedural information
  • a flexible organization that adapts to a variety of syllabi , such as beginning Civil Procedure with the study of jurisdiction and I, or beginning with the rules of pleading
  • a two-color interior design that frames and highlights pedagogy

The Second Edition features:

  • the latest changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
    • amendments that change the time periods within which most actions under the Rules need to be taken
    • new provisions that address issues related to the discovery of electronic information
    • amendments scheduled to take effect on December 1, 2010, concerning summary judgment and discovery related to expert witnesses
  • an integrated, enhanced treatment of jurisdiction, venue, service, and choice of law
