Civil Procedure: Cases and Problems
This vibrant casebook helps students understand the system for settling civil disputes, the lawyer's role in representing clients, and the uses of procedural rules. Authors Babcock and Massaro cover standard topics and cases in a context that facilitates understanding of this difficult course. Professors particularly remark on its superb coverage of Personal Jurisdiction.
To unite the disparate topics that make civil procedure so challenging while keeping their book student-friendly, the authors:
present efficient explanatory text and speak directly in the notes and comments, shunning Delphic questions and string cites
open major sections with 'problem cases' and materials drawn from a wide range of sources -- cases, statutes, and historical, sociolegal, or journalistic materials
use traditional cases but emphasize the identities and motivations of the litigants
stress the lawyer's role and issues of professional responsibility.
Civil Procedure opens with a two-chapter overview of procedural due process and the decision-makers who affect it. the next five chapters proceed chronologically through the stages of a lawsuit, from pleadings to appeals. the final chapter summarizes the entire course by presenting an appellate case on every topic covered.
This remarkable casebook helps students learn all the basics in a memorable, engaging manner.
