About the Book

An innovative, highly accessible casebook that features problems, cases connected by narrative text, charts, and graphs, all presented in a manner suited to multiple teaching approaches.


• Incorporates problems throughout each chapter allowing students to reinforce their understanding of basic doctrine and to explore doctrine in greater depth.
• Presents information graphically through charts and diagrams to appeal to multiple learning styles and reinforce student comprehension.
• Includes all relevant statutes, rules, and constitutional provisions.
• Includes a comprehensive Teachers’ Manual with the authors’ suggestions for using chapter materials, the authors’ views about the text problems, and other supporting materials and references.
• Presents topics that otherwise overlap with coverage in Civil Procedure (e.g., subject matter jurisdiction) in a manner that leads to more advanced and interesting treatment.
