Control the review process at trial and appeal and thereby turn it into a powerful, strategic tool!

Now in its fourth edition, Federal Standards of Review provides a comprehensive analysis of the review process in civil, criminal and administrative cases. Know exactly how to evaluate a matter brought before the court for review, whether it involves juries, motions, agencies and magistrate judges, or habeas.
