Learn more about Connected eBooksCivil Procedure, 11th edition by Yeazell, Schwartz, and Carroll provides students with a working knowledge of the procedural system. In Civil Procedure, the authors employ a pedagogical style that offers flexible organization at a manageable length. The book introduces students to the procedural system and provides them with techniques of statutory analysis. The included cases are factually interesting and do not involve substantive matters beyond the experience of first-year students. The problems following the cases present real-life issues. Finally, the book incorporates a number of dissenting opinions to dispel the notion that procedural disputes always present clear-cut issues.
