This book differs from other Civil Procedure casebooks in several ways. The most significant way 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. 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. This new edition has made some major changes, including updates of all the cases and a complete revamp of several chapters. For more information visit the companion site .
