This text is for students taking courses in complex litigation, advanced civil procedure, or mass torts. It is also designed as a concise book for members of the bench and bar who are handling multidistrict litigation cases. Its focus is on all aspects of federal multidistrict litigation (MDL), including statistics on MDL cases; comparisons with other aggregation devices (such as class actions); the decision of the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (the Panel) to centralize cases (including the standards for centralization and the selection of the MDL district court and judge); appellate review of Panel decisions; tag-along cases; the role of the MDL transferee judge (including case management, designating lead lawyers and committees, deciding motions, conducting bellwether trials, overseeing settlements, and awarding attorneys' fees); choice-of-law issues in MDLs; personal jurisdiction and venue issues; remand of transferred cases; federal/state coordination (including state MDL statutes); and proposals for reform of MDL 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.
Whether you're practicing in the High Court or County Court, you will need The Green Book. It is the essential guide to bringing, defending and appealing civil proceedings. It provides focused, authoritative and comprehensive coverage of the CPR from experts including Lord Justices of Appeal, District Judges and leading practitioners and is fully cross-referenced to Butterworths Civil Court Precedents. The Green Book is known for its clear, comprehensive and pertinent explanation of the Rules, the cases and their application. This detailed coverage is unrivalled by other texts on civil procedure and places The Green Book firmly at the top of the litigation tree. All the information you could need is contained in two main volumes with nothing archived. Available in 4 formats - book, CD-ROM, eBook and online as part of the Civil Procedure menu. The Green Book can be with you wherever and whenever. The 2018 edition includes all of the most recent updates to the CPR. Volume One examines procedure in the civil courts and contains the Civil Procedure Rules 1998, the RSC, CCR and Protocols. This volume is reissued in October as part of the annual subscription; there is also an updating supplement in the summer and a regular newsletter, Civil Court News, containing case summaries and articles. Volume Two covers general and more specific jurisdiction of the civil courts, including Companies, Personal Injury, Contempt of Court and Mental Capacity and Mental Health. Two separate supplements contain the Procedural Tables, the fees and up-to-date court guides for easy desk-top reference. The Procedural Tables assist in complicated or lengthy procedures which have to be completed quickly, minimising the risk of error. Essential commentary and explanatory notes are included throughout, written by an expert editorial board, including Lord Justices of Appeal, QBD and Chancery Masters, District Judges and leading practitioners. A CD-ROM provides the full text of both main volumes and the supplements, as well as a complete set of fillable and downloadable forms.
This book examines mediation topics such as impartiality, self-determination and fair outcomes through popular culture lenses. Popular television shows and award-winning films are used as illustrative examples to illuminate under-represented mediation topics such as feelings and expert intuition, conflicts of interest and repeat business, and deception and caucusing. The author also employs research from Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, India, Israel, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States of America to demonstrate that real and reel mediation may have more in common than we think. How mediation is imagined in popular culture, compared to how professors teach it and how mediators practise it, provides important affective, ethical, legal, personal and pedagogical insights relevant for mediators, lawyers, professors and students, and may even help develop mediator identity.
The European lawmaker is currently overseeing what appears to be a paradigm shift in the way that cross-border litigation is conducted within the European Union. This matter was initially conceptualised from the perspective of international judicial cooperation, based on the notion of mutual trust and mutual recognition. Recent developments, however, have introduced the option of harmonisation as a new regulatory approach. The first part of the book is focused on the possible methodological approaches at hand. Special emphasis is placed on the role of the Court of Justice of the European Union as a promoter of a European Procedural Law (principle of effectiveness and principle of equivalence). The second part assesses to what extend harmonisation is already used: horizontally , through the regulations on international judicial cooperation, for example the European Account Preservation Order; and vertically , through the promotion of harmonised standards promoted by the directives on intellectual property rights and competition damages (access to information and evidence), or in the directive on trade secrets and in the field of data protection (protection of confidential information). With a view to the future, the final part examines two more recent initiatives: ELI-UNIDROIT and the proposal for a directive on common minimum standards of civil procedure in the EU. The Future of the European Law of Civil Procedure: Coordination or Harmonisation? clearly outlines the motivations of the various national and institutional players in the regulation of civil procedural law and identifies potential obstacles likely to be encountered along the way that will be useful for every lawyer in the field.
Of the first-year subjects, Civil Procedure is the most foreign to students' experience. This book unlocks Civil Procedure by explaining doctrine and rules and placing them in context - showing what each doctrine is doing and how each doctrine relates to the others. It includes a chapter on how law school differs from college and what that means for class- and exam-preparation. It provides concrete analytical frameworks for resolving exam questions. And throughout, scores of examples allow you to apply the law to fact patterns.
