Contextualizing Civil Procedure It's the Civil Procedure Professors' classic lament - litigators who are former students are always telling us that NOW they see why civil procedure is so important, and that NOW they understand it. Our challenge is to make the course accessible to our students while they are enrolled, not just after they start practicing. The Patt v. Donner case file is intended to do just that - to help civil procedure students put the course in context as they study, by requiring them to follow, and help draft the pleadings, as a simulated case unfolds from the first day of the semester to the last. On day 1 students watch a ten-minute You Tube(tm) video of an initial client interview. Paula Patt, a newly arrived graduate student at UC Berkeley has been denied an apartment; she suspects it's because she's a single mother. Over the course of the semester students participate in drafting her complaint and seeking a TRO; switch sides to help complete motions to dismiss for failure to state a claim, lack of personal jurisdiction, and lack of subject matter jurisdiction; switch back to amend the complaint and move for discovery sanctions; and conclude the term with jury voir dire and a settlement negotiation. Each pleading exercise provides the student with a largely completed pleading; all they need to do is draft a few key paragraphs. The exercises can be completed as homework or in class, as solo assignments or in teams, and with feedback from the instructor, teaching assistants, or through peer review. The instructors' edition contains teaching notes and a completed example of each pleading exercise. For more information and additional teaching materials, visit the companion site.

Learning Civil Procedure provides a broad, student-centered, user-friendly approach to civil procedure that is both clear and sophisticated. Students build mastery of the material through the presentation of examples and analyses. Students then move on to involved problems similar to what they will encounter on final examinations, bar examinations, and as lawyers. The book makes great use of problems to facilitate dialogue in class and correspondingly uses many fewer case excerpts than does the typical casebook. Students will emerge as competent and culturally literate lawyers because the book also includes the core "canon" of civil procedure opinions as well as sufficient historical background. Learning Civil Procedure is a book designed by authors who both teach and litigate, making it the perfect tool for ensuring that students are ready for the classroom, the bar exam, and real-world litigation practice.
