This Concise Hornbook covers the main points of civil procedure that any student needs to understand, and covers them briefly but thoroughly enough to be understandable. It focuses on the material covered in a typical law school course on civil procedure, tied to no one casebook. It breaks down the subject of civil procedure along the standard lines: a brief orientation; then a lengthier overview of the stages of litigation, followed by a close inspection of the major procedural problems (governing law, authority to adjudicate, former adjudication, and complex litigation); and finally some reflections in conclusion. It discusses specific problems and illustrations, with the aid of generously sprinkled diagrams and special text boxes. Special attention was given to fitting the civil procedure course's main points together to form the big picture, with each topic ending in a section on the "big idea" (separation of powers, vertical federalism, horizontal federalism, full faith and credit, or procedural due process) that the student is supposed to take from the topic.

The Eleventh Edition of this popular casebook provides a framework for studying both the essential and the cutting-edge issues of civil procedure while incorporating problems that test doctrinal understanding, foster case reading skills, and encourage a sense of litigation strategy. New Supreme Court cases have been integrated that impact personal jurisdiction (McIntyre, Goodyear), subject-matter jurisdiction (Grable, Gunn), pleading (Twombly, Iqbal), joinder (Pimentel), class actions (Dukes), and other important topics, including statutory changes such as the Jurisdiction Clarification Act. The casebook covers all of the major topics that a professor might wish to teach in a first-year course, and can easily be adapted for courses of one- or two-semesters, of different credit hours, and with varied practical or theoretical emphases. A supplement includes all updated Federal Rules, the pleadings in Twombly and Iqbal, a model case file, state materials, and other important teaching tools.

This book is a collaborative effort by fourteen law-school professors to provide a deeper understanding of the great civil procedure cases. The professors each wrote a short chapter on one of the cases, retelling the cases in their own voice and by their own method. Each chapter has a fairly consistent structure, with separate sections on: social and legal background of the case; factual background of the case; lower court proceedings in the case; final appellate disposition, including issues, decisions, reasons, and separate opinions; factual postscript to the case; immediate impact of the case on the development of the law (why the case is famous and when it became so); and continuing importance of the case today (why it is still a leading case).The accompanying website, http://civprostories.law.cornell.edu, serves as a research tool for students, academics, and practitioners.

The Authors, recognized authorities in the subject for over a quarter of a century, provide succinct and authoritative coverage of the major principles in modern American Constitutional Law. This book, a shortened version based on the authors' hornbook-popular with students-and their five volume treatise-popular with judges, practioners and scholars-analyzes the constitutional issues that are studied in law schools today. It discusses the origins of judicial review and federal jurisdiction, federal commerce and spending powers, state powers in light of the dormant commerce clause, the war power, freedom of speech and religion, equal protection, due process, and other important individual rights and liberties. Each chapter begins with a summary of the basic law as it exists today, followed by an analysis of the work of the Court. Judges and law review authors have made the Nowak & Rotunda treatise one of the most cited books in modern years.

This book, which focuses on cases decided in the last decade, differs from similar casebooks in several ways - most notably its extensive use of problems and exercises. Each section includes an Introductory Problem to encourage students to think about the issues, and a review of problems at the end. This approach helps students become comfortable in applying the rules they have learned, and gives them the incentive to look closely at the language of the positive law itself. Exercises throughout encourage students to use their research skills to discover how state procedural standards compare with the federal rules and statutes.
