Lively and engaging, Civil Procedure, Second Edition, breaks down the complex principles of Civil Procedure into its constituent parts, and then reassembles them into a cohesive model that students can readily grasp. Popular bar lecturer and casebook author Richard Freer offers an invaluable learning tool for students struggling to understand this challenging course. Eminently suitable for use alongside any casebook, Civil Procedure, Second Edition, features: broad coverage that reflects the topical content of the leading casebooks defining the issue, a chapter opener that clearly explains major concepts and places them in context salient connections among related concepts, (e.g., personal jurisdiction, subject matter jurisdiction, and venue are all discussed in terms of the overarching theme of selecting a court) strategically positioned hypotheticals that show students how to apply the doctrine and rules To The facts, particularly for difficult legal concepts such as aggregation and supplemental jurisdiction analytical frameworks on topics such as personal jurisdiction and Erie synthesize complex doctrine and suggest a format for addressing fact patterns Updated throughout, The revised Second Edition of Civil Procedure incorporates: the restyled Federal Rules of Civil Procedure commentary on case law concerning discovery of electronically stored information discussion of the Class Action Fairness Act Grable & Sons Metal Products, Inc. v. Darue Engineering & Manufacturing, the landmark opinion regarding federal question jurisdiction Bell Atlantic v. Twombly, impacting the traditional notice pleading of the Federal Rules expanded coverage of Exxon Mobil Corp. v. Allapattah, regarding diversity jurisdiction Written with wit, clarity, and a commitment to teaching, Richard Freer's Civil Procedure shows students how the various doctrines fit together into a comprehensive and cohesive framework. Students have found the book remarkably clear and helpful: "an excellent guide to Civil Procedure. ... I was essentially lost For The majority of my Civil Procedure class until I bought this book." "... I find myself coming back to Freer's book to clarify topics that are covered in my casebook." "... full of examples and frameworks that assure success on your CivPro exam."
