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.
This outline summarizes the black-letter rules of civil procedure. It covers general considerations, litigating step-by-step, authority to adjudicate, complex litigation, governing law, and former adjudication. It allows students to understand how their course materials fit together, doing so by conveying a conception of civil procedure-the relationships among the ideas and the law that constitute the subject. This book is carefully designed and written as a study aid in preparing for classes and as a review aid in studying for examinations, containing all the many special features that characterize the highly successful Black Letter Series of books, such as a glossary and sample examination questions and answers.

Modern Complex Litigation is the successor to Complex Litigation and the Adversary System, which was published in 1998. Due to the many developments in this field, the authors have reorganized and completely rewritten the text. Most of the principal cases used in the new edition have been decided since 1998, and many of the notes discuss cases, literature, and developments that have arisen in the past decade. In the interest of creating an accessible, student-friendly text, the book has been substantially shortened through the careful editing of cases and the use of short, informative notes. At the same time, the casebook still attempts to achieve the prior casebook's comprehensive survey of the field. After an introductory chapter, the casebook examines issues regarding the structure of the lawsuit and the aggregation of claims (such as joinder, preclusion, MDL transfer, class actions, and jurisdiction), and then addresses issues that arise during pretrial, trial, a
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.

This book is designed to be used in conjunction with any of the existing civil procedure casebooks. It includes the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, procedural statutes, state rules of court, and illustrative forms. The cases highlight areas commonly addressed in first-year civil procedure courses, but demonstrate how California procedure differs from its federal counterpart.
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.
