Levine, Slomanson, and Shapell's Cases and Materials on California Civil Procedure, 5th
Hardbound - New, hardbound print book.
The casebook addresses procedures unique to California practice that are not generally presented in the first-year course in civil procedure. The case selection, notes and text all reinforce the perspective of a practitioner choosing knowledgeably between state and federal court. Cases and notes address many state/federal differences in all major areas of civil procedure, such as: pleading, discovery, right to trial by jury, alternative dispute resolution, settlement, res judicata, and appeals.
