This 750-page civil procedure casebook is structured so that it can be taught quickly but at a high level. The tightly-edited cases capture students’ interest while teaching the material well. Notes are short but intellectually challenging. The book has enough materials to cover topics basically or in depth. The casebook introduces students to the themes running through civil procedure: efficiency and fairness, advantages and disadvantages of the adversarial system, real-life litigation strategies, and issues of federalism and separation of powers. The 4th edition has been updated to include not only the most recent Supreme Court cases, but new cases from the lower federal courts. The 2015 and 2016 cases fully account for the important 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The teacher's manual suggests strategies for teaching the materials and different approaches for credit allocations and teacher preferences.
