Written by respected scholars and experienced educators, this book showcases rules and doctrine of civil procedure at work in the actual practice of law. The procedural and nonprocedural aspects of the cases are framed to hold students’ interest: doctrines reflect the choices of policymakers and also present strategic options for litigators. Each chapter contains a well-written introduction, cases, and clear explanations of the doctrine, supported by review questions and comments which deepen students’ understanding and clarify key concepts. Offering more than forty well-crafted problems (both for class use and review), these practice exercises and review exercises help students solidify their understanding of the materials whether used in class or as out-of-class assignments. In-class exercises and simulations based on two sample case files are integrated throughout. Pleadings, memoranda, transcripts, exhibits, motions, and more – all taken from real cases – appear in the Appendix. Civil Procedure: Doctrine, Practice, and Context consistently emphasizes the skills and values of lawyering as it offers a consideration of social responsibility.
