Materials for a Basic Course in Civil Procedure, Concise

Materials for a Basic Course in Civil Procedure, Concise

Author: Kevin M. Clermont Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/08/2020

This casebook is the concise, and very modern, version of a respected classic of civil procedure casebooks. The key to its brevity is its efficient and systematic step-by-step survey of the subject in Part One, which provides a tight 270-page comprehensive treatment of current civil procedure. The survey suffices to give the students a complete and solid grounding in civil procedure by means of the cases, commentaries, text, and questions that progress from pretrial and settlement to trial, judgment, appeal, jurisdiction, and complex litigation. This brief yet thorough coverage leaves time for in-depth treatment of a few selected problem areas regarding the system's fundamental structure in Part Two on governing law, Part Three on authority to adjudicate, and Part Four on res judicata. The thirteenth edition has been thoroughly updated. It newly features most prominently a reordering of Part Three and a reworking of the rapidly changing subject of general and specific personal jurisdiction. Finally, it brings a proven Stories approach to the presentation of the major cases' backgrounds.

California Civil Procedure in a Nutshell

California Civil Procedure in a Nutshell

Author: William Slomanson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/08/2020

The new edition of California Civil Procedure in a Nutshell is designed to bridge the gap between law school and law practice. While the booklet cannot provide legal advice, it will benefit these audiences in the following ways: (1) law students will consider it an effective aid for learning the key differences between their state and federal procedure courses; (2) bar applicants, who could not benefit from an upper-division course in California Civil Procedure, will value this booklet as a succinct pathfinder in their journey to enter the profession; (3) new associates will deem it a handy resource for their preliminary research; and (4) all readers will view its multiple Tables as pictures worth a thousand words. Readability has been improved by placing the accompanying legal citations, with pinpoint cites, at the end of most paragraphs. Citing only the official reporter (when available) facilitates both brevity and flow. The ubiquitous case and statutory quotes promote an appreciation of content. One studying for an exam might find these citations helpful, when using the front-matter Table of Cases to link this Nutshell to your professor's particular course. They are also invaluable short-cuts, for law clerks and associates in search of a handy reference tool. The multiple end-of-paragraph parentheticals contain cite-specific reference phrases for reader convenience. This technique avoids the textual narrative being interrupted with sentence-by-sentence citation. It further eschews those ghastly, interruptive, downstairs doorbell-ringing footnotes-while retaining the flanking citations necessary for efficient legal research. This Nutshell's companion webpage is located at http://www.tjsl.edu/slomansonb/T&F_WebQuiz&MC.docx.It offers true-false and multiple choice quizzes, designed to open doors which were previously ajar. This e-component contains: chapter review questions-intended to simultaneously evoke both true and false responses; answers-to facilitate self-assessment; a new multiple choice review segment; and answers-to support learning objectives.

Principles of Civil Procedure

Principles of Civil Procedure

Author: Kevin Clermont Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/08/2020

This concise hornbook covers the main points of civil procedure that any student needs to understand, and covers them briefly but thoroughly enough to be understandable. It focuses on the material covered in a typical law school course on civil procedure, tied to no one casebook. It breaks down the subject of civil procedure along the standard lines: a brief orientation; then a lengthier overview of the stages of litigation, followed by a close inspection of the major procedural problems (governing law, authority to adjudicate, former adjudication, and complex litigation); and finally some reflections in conclusion. It discusses specific problems and illustrations, with the aid of generously sprinkled diagrams and special text boxes. Special attention was given to fitting the civil procedure course's main points together to form the big picture, with each topic ending in a section on the big idea (separation of powers, vertical federalism, horizontal federalism, full faith and credit, or procedural due process) that the student is supposed to take from the topic.
