Civil Procedure: A Coursebook

by Joseph W. Glannon Peter Raven-Hansen Andrew M. Perlman

Casebooks generally present a series of cases followed by notes and questions, but the authors of this text saw the need for something different. They wrote this coursebook with features that are student-friendly. Each chapter begins with a summary, and each case begins with an introduction that includes questions to think about before reading the case. Notes and questions follow, but this work differs from others in that almost all the questions are answered. Ease of use and clarity shaped the design and organization of the book (e. g. short chapters, the use of fonts and borders to designate types of text, summaries of key concepts). Material is presented in chapters on subject matter jurisdiction, personal jurisdiction, venue, pleading, joinder and supplemental jurisdiction, discovery, choice of law, trial and pretrial, and after final judgment. Joseph W. Glannon and Andrew M. Perlman are affiliated with Suffolk U. , and Peter Raven-Hansen, with George Washington U. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)

Understanding Civil Procedure (4th Edition)

by Gene R. Shreve Peter Raven-Hansen

This well-established treatise is premised on the assumption that the key to understanding the principles of civil procedure is to know why: why the principles were created and why they are invoked. The treatise is written to answer these questions as it lays out the basic principles of civil procedure. It also reflects the authors? belief that students of civil procedure can understand and appreciate complex principles when they are clearly presented; teaching civil procedure does not require dumbing it down. The authors use the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure as a model, but they also refer to different state rules and doctrines where appropriate in order to present a representative cross-section of state models. Although they discuss important civil procedure cases in the text, thus supporting the most widely used civil procedure casebooks using these same cases, they also provide useful references to secondary sources and illustrative cases for the reader who wants to explore further.
