The Civil Procedure book in our Developing Professional Skills series -- used as a supplement to your regular text book -- makes it easy to integrate skills training into the civil procedure classroom. The book contains ten exercises designed to develop practice skills of legal drafting, client interviewing and counseling, negotiation, and advocacy. Students spend a manageable one to two hours on tasks including: interviewing a client and then drafting a short complaint; preparing an outline of key arguments supporting a motion to dismiss; negotiating the "clawback" of an inadvertently disclosed document; and drafting a statement of undisputed facts to support a summary judgment motion. Realistic pleadings, discovery, and other documents from the case file are included throughout the book. A comprehensive Teacher's Manual provides guidance and suggestions for expanding the classroom discussion to include professional responsibility concepts and the norms of modern legal practice.
