Freer's A Short & Happy Guide to Civil Procedure, 3d
Of the first-year subjects, Civil Procedure is the most foreign to students’ experience. This book unlocks Civil Procedure by explaining doctrine and rules and placing them in context – explaining the role of each and how each doctrine relates to the others. It includes a chapter on how law school differs from college and what that means for class- and exam-preparation. It provides concrete analytical frameworks for resolving exam questions. And throughout, scores of examples allow you to apply the law to fact patterns.
