This title is a part of our CasebookPlusâ,,¢ offering as ISBN 9781634608770. Learn more at CasebookPlus.com. This new text provides the professor with great flexibility in teaching year-long civil procedure courses or more condensed one-semester offerings. The text puts students in the position of lawyers and asks them to consider the strategic, tactical, and ethical choices they will confront in practice. Features distinguishing this text include: The text has been written to incorporate the December 1, 2015, amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the most recent statutes and cases, rather than simply adding new developments onto an older text. The cases selected, many at the district court level, are contemporary in both the law applied and case subject matterâe"including actions involving same-sex marriage, mortgage-default litigation, electronic discovery, and the recusal of the federal district judge handling the challenge to New York Cityâe(tm)s âeoestop and friskâe litigation. The initial case in the text, Leonard v. PepsiCo, is one that students are likely to encounter in their contracts course but that presents rich procedural questions as well. Ethical issues are stressed throughout the text, including the ethical choices open to the lawyers in the cases presented and citations to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct and applicable state ethical rules. The chapters conclude with both essay and multiple-choice questions that can be assigned by the professor for exam practice or class discussion or can be used by individual students to review each chapterâe(tm)s material. More than 40 figures are included in the text, to present procedural law in tabular and visual form. In these many ways, Civil Procedure: Representing Clients in Civil Litigation presents a unique way in which to engage your students in actively learning civil procedure and understanding the civil litigation process.
