The Civil Litigation authors present legal principles and their application to litigation work in a very practical manner, making it easier to grasp the many concepts involved. The litigation process is covered in detail in a host of contexts so the reader can understand the relationship of litigation to other legal specialties. Sample documents such as complaints, answers, interrogatories and deposition summaries are presented and explained in relevant chapters, giving readers familiarity with documents they will encounter in the litigation law office setting. Several features in each chapter help reinforce the material. Questions for Review help the reader recall the important legal concepts of the chapter. Questions for Analysis promote understanding and application of the material to factual situations, and chapter exercises and projects provide the chance to apply the chapter material to such projects as drafting sample documents. In particular, an exercise in each chapter relates to a single case, giving students the opportunity to work it from beginning to end, simulating an on-the-job experience. Unique to this book is the on-line availability of state-specific supplements covering state law and practice for several states including California, New York, Ohio, Florida, and Texas.
