A Student's Guide to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, 2018-2019 Paperback / softback
Part of the Selected Statutes series
What Makes A Student's Guide to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Different?Text of the Rules, Title 28, and Constitution: The 2018-2019 edition as amended through December 1, 2018, the frequently-consulted sections of the U.S.
Judiciary Code, and the text of the U.S. Constitution. Most Rules Supplements available to students contain that same content.
But where most supplements stop, A Student's Guide continues on.... PLUS... Student-Friendly Orientation to Each Rule: What many students often find challenging in studying Civil Procedure?and what is less likely to be found in either a casebook or a conventional study aid?is an understanding of how each Rule ""fits"" into the master scheme of federal civil practice generally.
This edition of A Student's Guide offers students that very guidance.
Three added features now follow the text of each Rule:""How This Rule Fits In"" explains for students the context of each Rule and the role each plays in federal civil practice;""The Architecture of this Rule"" which helps students unpack the structure of those Rules that are especially long and confusing;"How This Rule Works in Practice" which is designed to help students understand each Rule's application, subpart by subpart, and the real-world, practical life of practicing attorneys. PLUS... Citations to Interpretative Case Law: Also unlike most other Rules Supplements, A Student's Guide provides students with select, leading interpretative case law analyzing the Rules and their subparts.
This, then, converts this resource into a ""finding aid" of sorts, as students work through applied problems in the context of the Rules. PLUS... A "Getting Started" Overview to Federal Practice Concepts: Because many of the related core concepts of federal practice are an amalgam of law found in Rules, statutes, constitutional provisions, and case law, A Student's Guide bridges that gulf with quick, orienting discussions of central practice concepts like personal jurisdiction, subject-matter jurisdiction, removal, venue, forum non conveniens, the Erie Doctrine, and claim and issue preclusion.
These distillations allow students to acquire a broad view of those related practice contexts. PLUS... A Handy Overview of Federal Appellate Practice: This edition of A Student's Guide also includes a concise, student-friendly overview of federal appellate practice. PLUS... A Helpful Orientation to the Rulemaking Process: A Student's Guide also includes a brief orientation for students to the process of federal rulemaking, how the Rules originally came into existence, and how they are amended.
