The seventh edition of Cases and Materials on Civil Procedure is updated to reflect recent changes in procedural rules and practice. While essentially a traditional casebook organized along the lines of the events in a lawsuit, this edition retains the unique features that have made prior editions a success, including 

  • Chapter Summary Problems—optional comprehensive problems requiring the student to "put the chapter together" and apply to the problems the material addressed in the chapter; 
  • "Improving the System" sections challenging students to think more deeply about cutting-edge issues;
  • Litigation documents showing actual litigation sequences; 
  • "How to Read This Case" notes preceding particularly difficult cases; and
  • A chapter devoted to Alternative Dispute Resolution methods. 

Some materials in this edition have been rearranged for ease of use. Cases and Materials on Civil Procedure is supplemented annually.
