This is the first primary text for a Civil Procedure course to incorporate skills assignments into the book. The book contains the statutes, rules, and edited cases that are the staples of traditional Civil Procedure casebooks. Beyond thoroughly covering the traditional materials, the book actively involves students in the application of civil procedure concepts. It includes three simple simulation cases: one contracts-based, one torts-based, and one blended case, all calibrated for use by first year students. Sample documents from real cases are also included, giving practical context to concepts. Reading the sample documents allows students to see how lawyers engage the civil procedure concepts in actual work. Students using this book will engage in experiential learning exercises, including drafting the jurisdictional allegations for complaints, drafting very simple pleadings and motions, and responding to supervisor email messages.
