Synopsis: What Makes A Student's Guide to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Different (and why it helps give your students an edge in learning Civil Procedure):
· Rules PLUS Commentary on the Rules: Most Rules Supplements available to students are austere reprints of the Rules, some selected U.S.C. sections, and the Constitution. But what students often find challenging in studying Civil Procedure, and what is less likely to be found in either the casebook or a conventional study aid, is a Rule-by-Rule dissection of language and meaning. Students may feel themselves comfortable with "big-picture" concepts addressed by the Rules, but less comfortable on the Rules' practical application. The commentary in A Student's Guide helps fill that gap and manage that natural student apprehension. Treating the Rules in order, students are given the full Rule text, followed by the "Purpose & Scope" of that Rule, followed by the "Core Concept" of each Rule sub-part, followed lastly by extensive practitioner-developed analyses and discussions of that Rule subpart in application. It is a level of Rule-based analysis found in few other student materials.
· Distillation of Critical 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 tries to bridge that gulf with quick, orienting discussions of central practice concepts like personal jurisdiction, in rem jurisdiction, subject matter jurisdiction, removal, venue, forum non conveniens, the Erie Doctrine, and claim and issue preclusion. These distillations allow students, struggling to make applied sense of Rules-based concepts, to acquire a bit more broadened view of how the Rules fit within those related practice contexts.
· Interpretative Case Law: Also unlike most other Rules Supplements, A Student's Guide offers students a strong introduction to the interpretative case law analyzing the Rules and their subparts. This, then, converts this Rules Supplement into a "finding aid,” of sorts, for students as they work through applied problems in the context of the Rules. The case law is extensive (though introductory), and very current. This edition of A Student's Guide, for example, contains more than 1,000 new citations to primary authorities―most of which were decided within the past 12 months. This new edition also contains fulsome discussions of both Twombly and Iqbal, as well as the Supreme Court's recent personal jurisdiction opinions (Goodyear and J. McIntyre Machinery), and class action ruling (WalMart v. Dukes).
