Twenty-First Century Civil Procedure, Third Editionpresents the major themes of U.S. civil litigation—the adversary system, our dedication to the use of juries in civil cases, our American brand of federalism and its impact on the judicial system and litigation generally, and the relatively recent development of managerial judging—for an introductory course on civil procedure. With its contemporary perspective, Twenty-First Century Civil Procedureincludes discussion of modern problems, such as e-discovery and the requirement of careful scrutiny during the certification stage of class suits. The skillful pedagogy evident throughout the book is designed to provide context for the understanding of doctrines and issues, and to stimulate classroom discussion. Expository text introduces students to the issues, followed by carefully edited cases that resolve some of the more important issues, practical Problems, and Notes and Questions that aid the process of analysis. Pictures and sidebars provide additional context and pique student interest. A statutory supplement is published annually.

New to the Third Edition:

  • New cases—including Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. v. Superior Court of California; Ford Motor Co. v. Montana Eighth Judicial District Court; and Ford Motor Co. v. Bandemer
  • Streamlined—the Third Edition is approximately 10% shorter

Professors and students will benefit from:

  • Ample expository text introducing doctrines and issues in context
  • Exploration of major themes in civil litigation, including the adversary system, use of juries, the federal structure of our judicial system, and the advent of managerial judging
  • Comprehensive treatment of federalism, including Erie doctrine, pre-emption, abstention, and anti-suit injunctions
  • Examination of jury entitlement without all the lengthy and inconclusive that add complexity and obscurity to the subject
  • Detailed coverage of post-verdict challenges (new trial and JMAL motions, additur and remittitur)
