An Illustrated Guide to Civil Procedureis a student-friendly and problem-based introduction to how the federal rules operate in the context of a realistic age discrimination case. Students work with the Rules as the case carries them from client intake to trial, all the way to a resolution of the case. They shadow the attorneys and actively participate by making strategic and tactical decisions, and by reviewing and critiquing complaints, answers, motions, and discovery pleas. Truly an illustrated guide to Civil Procedure, this companion supplement is a great asset to all Civil Procedure courses, whether they begin with jurisdiction or the rules of pleading.
