Civil Procedure: A Modern Approach

Front Cover
A leading civil procedure casebook, Civil Procedure: A Modern Approach offers in-depth coverage of the many topics pertinent to complex litigation and emphasizes the dynamic developments that continue to reshape the subject. A useful source and reference book for both law students and practicing attorneys, the book disproves the belief that civil procedure requires the rote-like study of precise rules. Civil Procedure includes extensive notes to introduce the complexities of the topic, while preserving an appreciation of the historical evolution of these doctrines. The fourth edition carries this commitment forward with expanded treatment of such cutting-edge issues as class actions and electronic discovery. The book also covers complex litigation, alternative dispute resolution, and constitutional law ? topics the authors have written about in detail in other casebooks.
