    Civil Procedure primes students to engage at a high level in the classroom. Howard M. Erichson and J. Maria Glover offer clear explanations and frameworks to help students see what is fascinating and important about each topic in civil procedure. By the time students arrive in the classroom, they will have a solid understanding not only of the basic mechanics of civil procedure, but also why the topic matters in the real world of litigation. The case selection reflects this commitment. Rather than featuring cases that raise quirky issues at the periphery, the authors chose cases to help students understand the core purposes and difficulties of each aspect of civil procedure. The notes and questions guide students step by step to better understand the implications of each case. Throughout, the authors offer insights on the implications of procedural rules as a matter of policy and as a matter of litigation strategy.
