LexisNexis CD - Moore's Federal Practice--Civil
Select a format
Moore’s Federal Practice is the backbone of any federal litigator’s library. Comprehensive and authoritative, Moore’s is written by the judges, lawyers, and professors who write and amend the Federal Rules, and is LexisNexis Matthew Bender's flagship treatise on federal civil, criminal, appellate, and admiralty procedure.
The first edition of this venerable work was written by the late Professor James William Moore, one of the original drafters of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, in 1938. From its initial publication, Moore’s instantly became, and remains today, the standard reference work on federal court procedure and has been cited thousands of times in federal court decisions.
This latest edition represents a complete overhaul of the classic work, authored by over 50 distinguished federal judges, law professors, and practitioners, including many who, like Professor Moore, have been directly involved in the federal rulemaking process. Moore’s 34 volumes include the full text of the federal rules along with extensive commentary and analysis of the rules and cases interpreting the rules.
The publication reflects recent style and time-computation amendments to the federal rules, as well as significant amendments to Civil Rules 26 and 56. Case law developments in evolving areas such as electronic discovery, pleading standards, and class actions are addressed in depth.
Customers who subscribe to the full Moore’s Federal Practice set will also receive the Moore’s Federal Practice Update (12 monthly issues) at no extra cost.
Moore’s Federal Rules Pamphlets offers federal practitioners the full text of the federal rules, plus a mini-treatise with analysis and case annotations. The rules and analysis appear in four portable pamphlets, sold separately or as a set, so attorneys can keep the relevant pamphlet in their briefcase or have it handy on their desktop. The pamphlets, available each December, only a couple of weeks after the effective date of the federal rule amendments, are timely and accurate.
The four softbound volumes are sold separately or as a set, and are replaced annually.

Also discusses the Habeas Corpus Rules.
Moore’s Federal Practice: Rules of Criminal Procedure has a rule-based organization, with a chapter devoted to each Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure, and additional chapters encompassing related proceedings such as habeas corpus. The treatise provides full annotations with in-depth evaluations of the decisions, and carefully analyzes issues not yet litigated to make the most comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date research tool for federal criminal practitioners.
