Civil Procedure, 11th edition by Yeazell, Schwartz, and Carroll provides students with a working knowledge of the procedural system. In Civil Procedure, the authors employ a pedagogical style that offers flexible organization at a manageable length. The book introduces students to the procedural system and provides them with techniques of statutory analysis. The included cases are factually interesting and do not involve substantive matters beyond the experience of first-year students. The problems following the cases present real-life issues. Finally, the book incorporates a number of dissenting opinions to dispel the notion that procedural disputes always present clear-cut issues.

New to the Eleventh Edition:  

  • Addition of co-author Professor Maureen Carroll of Michigan Law School, an expert in civil procedure, class actions, and civil rights litigation, and an award-winning teacher.
  • Updated personal jurisdiction chapter with streamlined opinion excerpts and additional cases reflecting the Supreme Court’s most recent decisions and cutting-edge jurisdictional questions.
  • Increased attention to settlement dynamics and pressures throughout the book.
  • Addition of contemporary cases that illuminate the impacts of civil procedure on issues of race, gender, and civil rights.
  • Updated statistics and information about civil litigation in the United States, including the high proportion of unrepresented litigants.

Professors and students will benefit from:
  • Teachable, well-structured casebook featuring a clear organization, concisely edited cases chosen to be readily accessible to first-year students, textual notes introducing each section that highlight connections between material, and practical problems
  • Manageable length which allows the class to get through this complex course material in limited hours
  • Flexible organization, adaptable to a variety of teaching approaches
  • Clear, straightforward writing style, making the material accessible to students without oversimplifying
  • Effective overview of the procedural system, which provides students with a working knowledge of the system and of techniques for statutory analysis
