Fundamentals of pretrial litigation
The Seventh Edition includes the latest developments in pretrial practice while enhancing the useful features of previous editions. The 2007 amendments to the federal rules are covered throughout, and the sections on pleading have been updated to discuss federal court pleading requirements in light of Bell Atlantic v. Twombly. Law professors and students praise the book's comprehensive coverage, thorough analysis of rules and procedures, balanced presentation of theories and skills, enjoyable writing style, and helpful questions and problems. It reflects 21st-century practice with the growing use of electronic discovery and court orders, the expanded use of pre-hearing discovery and motions in arbitrations and administrative hearings, and new procedural rule and case law developments across the spectrum of pretrial practice.
