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.

Pleading and Procedure

Pleading and Procedure

Author: Geoffrey C. Hazard Jr, William A. Fletcher, Stephen M. Bundy, Andrew D. Bradt Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/08/2020

This classic casebook has been thoroughly updated for 2020-retaining what has made it a favorite for decades while also remaining current and user-friendly. As ever, it contains lightly-edited cases with extensive explanatory notes, thereby teaching students how to read cases while learning doctrine. Some notes are historical and comparative, giving students a more nuanced understanding than can be obtained from simply studying current law. The book is accessible without sacrificing interest and complexity, providing a sophisticated understanding of civil procedure and the federal system. The book also remains adaptable to courses of different length and emphasis, and teaching the material in the instructor's preferred order. The twelfth edition has been thoroughly updated with extensive new material on personal jurisdiction, multidistrict litigation, the amended discovery rules (with a new exercise), and mandatory arbitration.

Civil Litigation 2020-2021

Civil Litigation 2020-2021

Civil Litigation introduces students to the processes and procedures involved in making and defending civil litigation claims. The text is ideal for students taking the Legal Practice Course or relevant LLB or LLM modules and features case studies on both a personal injury matter and a commercial matter, making it suitable for students with either a high street or a commercial focus. Following the chronological progression of a civil litigation claim, the book offers practical guidance on advising clients whilst ensuring that the latest principles of the SRA Handbook and Code of Conduct are maintained. Students on CILEx courses, new trainees in practice, and paralegals will find this practical guidance of use in both their study and their work. Innovative diagrams at the beginning of chapters clearly illustrate the litigation procedure and help students understand the nature of the process as a whole. Examples provide students with a realistic context for their learning, while issues of cost, best practice, and professional conduct are clearly highlighted. Alternative dispute resolution is given appropriate practical emphasis, and references to the Civil Procedure Rules throughout make sure that students are ready for life in practice. Online Resources - Case study documentation to support the fictional scenarios referred to in the book - Additional chapters covering injunctions, a practical guide to court hearings, instructions to counsel and enforcements of judgment - Annotated forms - Appendix - links to key Court forms - Litigation train timeline to help students put the litigation process in context - Podcasts - Updates - Weblinks - Additional case study materials for lecturers, including suggested answers to case study questions - Video clips - Test bank of over 50 multiple choice questions

Dispute Processes

Dispute Processes

This wide-ranging study considers the primary forms of decision-making - negotiation, mediation, umpiring, as well as the processes of avoidance and violence - in the context of rapidly changing discourses and practices of civil justice across a range of jurisdictions. Many contemporary discussions in this field-and associated projects of institutional design-are taking place under the broad but imprecise label of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). The book brings together and analyses a wide range of materials dealing with dispute processes, and the current debates on and developments in civil justice. With the help of analysis of materials beyond those ordinarily found in the ADR literature, it provides a comprehensive and comparative perspective on modes of handling civil disputes. The new edition is thoroughly revised and is extended to include new chapters on avoidance and self-help, the ombuds, Online Dispute Resolution and pressures of institutionalisation.

A Student's Guide to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, 2020-2021

A Student's Guide to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, 2020-2021

Author: Steven F. Baicker-McKee, William M. Janssen Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/07/2020

Receive complimentary lifetime digital access to the eBook with new print purchase. What Makes A Student's Guide to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Different? Text of the Rules, Title 28, and Constitution: The 2020-2021 edition supplies what your students need-the text of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (as amended through December 1, 2020), the frequently-consulted sections of the U.S. Judiciary Code (as amended through April 2020), and the text of the U.S. Constitution. Most Rules Supplements available to students contain that same content. But where most supplements stop, A Student's Guide continues on.... PLUS... Student-Friendly Orientation to Each Rule: What many students often find challenging in studying Civil Procedure-and what is less likely to be found in either a casebook or a conventional study aid-is an understanding of how each Rule fits into the master scheme of federal civil practice generally. This edition of A Student's Guide offers students that very guidance. Three features follow the text of each Rule: How This Rule Fits In explains for students the broad context of each Rule and the role each plays in federal civil practice; The Architecture of this Rule guides students in unpacking the structure of those Rules that are especially long and confusing; How This Rule Works in Practice helps students understand each Rule's application, subpart by subpart, in the real-world, practical life of practicing attorneys. PLUS... Citations to Interpretative Case Law: Also unlike most other Rules Supplements, A Student's Guide provides students with select, leading interpretative case law analyzing the Rules and their subparts. This, then, converts this resource into a finding aid of sorts, as students work through applied problems in the context of the Rules. PLUS... A Getting Started Overview to Federal Practice Concepts: Because many of the related core concepts of federal practice are an amalgam of law found in Rules, statutes, constitutional provisions, and case law, A Student's Guide bridges that gulf with quick, orienting discussions of central practice concepts like personal jurisdiction, subject-matter jurisdiction, removal, venue, forum non conveniens, the Erie Doctrine, and claim and issue preclusion. These distillations allow students to acquire a broad view of those related practice contexts. PLUS... A Handy Overview of Federal Appellate Practice: This edition of A Student's Guide also includes a concise, student-friendly overview of federal appellate practice. PLUS... A Helpful Orientation to the Rulemaking Process: A Student's Guide also includes a brief orientation for students to the process of federal rulemaking, how the Rules originally came into existence, and how they are amended.

The Law of Class Actions and Other Aggregate Litigation

The Law of Class Actions and Other Aggregate Litigation

Author: Richard A. Nagareda, Robert G. Bone, Elizabeth Chamblee Burch, Patrick Woolley Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/07/2020

The third edition of this casebook reflects the many developments that have occurred in aggregate litigation since 2013 while continuing to treat the subject as a coherent whole. This edition includes a short, systematic introduction to the range of different aggregation techniques and then pays detailed attention to class actions, multidistrict litigation (MDL), parens-patriae suits, bankruptcy, and arbitration. In particular, this edition features a new chapter devoted to MDL, in which topics range from selecting the transferee court, choosing what law should apply, and exploring the judicial role in examining MDL's effect on settlement and leadership selection. As before, the casebook does more than just present the law-it considers multiple perspectives on policy, litigation strategy, judicial practice, financial considerations, and empirical findings. The book fills three gaps in the market for teaching materials on the U.S. civil justice system. First, it treats aggregate litigation as a cohesive field of law that encompasses all devices for processing claims en masse. Second, the book confronts forthrightly the reality of our civil justice system as one geared toward settlement, not trial. From this vantage point, the casebook sees the processes for aggregate litigation as vehicles through which to achieve comprehensive, or broadly encompassing, resolution of related civil claims. Third, the book frames the legitimacy of preclusion in aggregate litigation by drawing, among other things, on conceptions of legitimacy in other settings, such as private contract and public legislation. In so doing, the casebook encourages students to see cross-cutting connections with their other courses on such topics as contracts, corporations, and administrative law.
