Buy a new version of this Connected Casebook and receive ACCESS to the online e-book, practice questions from your favorite study aids, and an outline tool on CasebookConnect, the all in one learning solution for law school students. CasebookConnect offers you what you need most to be successful in your law school classes – portability, meaningful feedback, and greater efficiency.

Using the Socratic method, Civil Procedure: Theory and Practice helps students develop strategic, critical thinking, with introductory text, examples, and hypotheticals that equip them for the challenges of practice. Sophisticated yet straightforward, the text strikes an important balance, providing clear exposition while requiring work to achieve deeper insights. The opening chapter gives an overview of the entire process, using real pleadings and discovery materials in the landmark N.Y. Times v. Sullivan case. The innovative “Anatomy of a Litigation” case study chapter systematically leads students from pleadings to verdict, using leading cases to deepen the connection between the classroom and the courtroom.


The Fourth Edition includes coverage of the Supreme Court decisions in Iqbal and Matrixx. It also looks at class actions and complex litigation such as the impact of Wal-Mart v. Dukes and the first wave of post-Dukes cases in the lower federal courts, as it continues its signature coverage of the Class Action Fairness Act.

The Fourth Edition debuts an extensive treatment of the impact of the Federal Arbitration Act and recent decisions on arbitration by the Supreme Court that alter the availability of remedies for consumer plaintiffs. Other new material explores summary judgment, analyzing the recent amendments to Rule 56, and Erie and the Rules Enabling Act with a thorough treatment of Shady Grove, the Court’s first major statement on the meaning, scope and operation of the Rules Enabling Act in decades.
