This concise compilation of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the portions of Title 28 of the U.S. Code most pertinent to civil litigation gives today’s practitioners a handy resource sized to facilitate quick reference and use on the go. Litigators will find that this volume is easy to bring along as a companion to a deposition, conference, hearing, or trial, providing ready access to desired rules and statutory provisions relevant to the litigation task at hand. Although attorneys may increasingly rely on electronic sources to refer to most legal materials today, accessing the FRCP and Title 28 via smartphones, tablets, and laptops can be more cumbersome than simply opening up this volume and can lack the context that analogue references provide. Additionally, lawyers typically lack access to electronic devices in the formal settings like depositions and trials. As such, this rulebook—which includes a reprint of the U.S. Constitution as well—is an essential part of a litigator’s toolkit.
