Litigation finance sits at the intersection of many well-known subjects within the law school curriculum: contracts, torts, civil procedure, evidence, professional responsibility, insurance, and capital markets. There are no professionally produced materials for a professor who wants to teach an entire semester-long course on litigation finance. This casebook is an attempt to fill that gap. Its ten chapters provide a foundation for a two- or three-credit class, although many of the chapters could also be used individually as supplemental material for a free-standing unit on litigation finance in another course, such as torts, civil procedure, or the law of lawyering. Notwithstanding the fact that the law of litigation finance is rapidly developing as investment in litigation and legal services grows, the cases and other materials contained in this book will remain relevant and useful to anyone trying to teach students about this important new body of law.

Benefits for instructors and students:
  • Careful selection of the leading cases in the United States about the development and current law of assignment and litigation finance.
  • Diverse selection of secondary source material, including major law review articles, as well as reports and advocacy materials from supporters and critics of litigation finance.
  • Notes following the readings help the student progress through the materials in a logical and coherent manner.
