Description:

Students deem Civil Procedure to be one of the hardest classes in law school for good reason. Doctrines from personal jurisdiction to Erie are convoluted and opaque, and the policies underlying the federal rules are difficult to grasp. The course is a hybrid of common law reasoning, rule and statutory analysis, and constitutional doctrine. InCivil Procedure: Model Problems and Outstanding Answers, Scott Dodson helps students demonstrate their knowledge of civil procedure in the structured and sophisticated manner that professors expect on law school exams. This book provides clear introductions to the major topics in civil procedure as well as the fact patterns and model answers most often found on Civil Procedure tests, followed by a comprehensive self-analysis section, giving students the opportunity to evaluate their own work. It prepares students by challenging them to use the law they learn in class while also explaining the best way to express the answer on law school exams.
