Students deem Civil Procedure to be one of the hardest classes in law school for good reason. Doctrines from personal jurisdiction to res judicata are difficult to apply to exam fact patterns, and the policies underlying the federal rules can be difficult to grasp. The course is a complex hybrid of common law, statutes, rules, and some constitutional doctrine. For the first time, Oxford University Press equips students with an accessible guide to acing this most challenging of law school tests. In Civil Procedure: Model Problems and Outstanding Answers, Scott Dodson helps students demonstrate their knowledge of civil procedure in the structured and sophisticated manner that professors expect on law school exams. This book includes clear introductions to the major topics in civil procedure, provides hypotheticals that students can expect to see on an exam, and offers model answers to those hypotheticals. Professor Dodson then gives students the opportunity to evaluate their own work with a comprehensive self-analysis section. This book prepares students by challenging them to use the law they learn in class while also explaining the best way to express an answer on law school exams. This second edition has been updated to reflect recent changes to the federal rules of civil procedure. It incorporates new paradigm cases, including Wal-Mart, Goodyear, and McIntyre. The second edition also reflects the new rule and statutory amendments, including the Federal Courts Jurisdictions and Venue Clarification Act of 2011.

In a criminal procedure class, students are asked to determine whether a citizen's constitutional rights were violated, and this question is consistently posed under a myriad of factual circumstances. In order to answer the query, students would need to examine and discuss the United States Supreme Court's interpretations of the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments of the US Constitution, identifying many tests and standards from those examinations and spirited discussions. Criminal Procedure: Model Problems and Outstanding Answers documents a few of the United States Supreme Court's tests and standards from these amendments to provide a more accurate assessment of whether a "right" under the Constitution has retained its full vitality, or whether it has been modified or made less vital than originally intended. Oxford University Press equips students with an accessible guide to acing challenging criminal procedure law exams. In Criminal Procedure: Model Problems and Outstanding Answers, Carlton Bailey helps students demonstrate their knowledge of criminal procedure in the structured and sophisticated manner that professors expect on law school exams. This book provides clear introductions on the fundamental topics in criminal procedure, provides hypotheticals similar to those that students can expect to see on an exam (including multi-issue questions), and offers model answers to those hypotheticals. Professor Bailey then coaches students in how to evaluate their own work with a comprehensive self-analysis section. This book prepares students by challenging them to use the law they learn in class while also explaining the best way to express sophisticated answers on law school exams.

This book differs from other Civil Procedure casebooks in several ways. The most and most significant is that it is structured around an extensive set of problems and exercises. This approach helps students become accustomed to reading and using the rule itself, rather than relying on a court's paraphrasing of that rule. Second, the book whenever possible uses cases decided in the last decade, underscoring that Procedure is a subject in constant flux. Finally, it is one of the very first to incorporate the 2007 complete rewrite of the Federal Rules. All of these materials are supplemented by extensive notes. The overall result is book that is very teachable, as well as a useful desk reference.
