Civil Procedure: Examples and Explanations
There are two types of Civil Procedure students -- those who use Glannon's helpful paperback and those who end up wishing they did. This phenomenally popular paperback text entered its Third Edition with the unqualified endorsement of students who consider it a survival guide and teachers who recognize it as a worthy partner to any casebook. In the hallmark Examples & Explanations Series style, the book follows a consistent format: each chapter contains explanatory text followed by questions which test student understanding, which are in turn followed by suggested answers.
While preserving his distinctive style and approach, Glannon's revisions reflect recent case law and changes in the Rules, such as:
-service of process (Rule 4)
-an enhanced section on discovery including two new chapters address the scope of discovery under Rule 26 and the major tools of discovery
CIVIL PROCEDURES: Examples and Explanations, Third Edition emphasizes personal and subject matter jurisdiction, res judicata, and collateral estoppel. Six full chapters illustrate pleadings and motions, with thorough explanation for the lawyers' strategy. to show how doctrines operate in relation to one another, several chapters compare and contrast related doctrines, such as:
-joinder and jurisdiction
-res judicata and joinder
Glannon also explains corollaries and qualifications of the doctrine, and offers an unmatched treatment of Erie.
By taking an unpretentious approach to civil procedure and using humor and historical names where appropriate, Glannon puts complex concepts within reach of the typical student.
