What Makes A Student's Guide to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Different?


Text of the Rules, Title 28, and Constitution: The 2019-2020 edition supplies what your students need-the text of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (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 features follow the text of each Rule:

"How This Rule Fits In" explains for students the broad context of each Rule and the role each plays in federal civil practice;
"The Architecture of this Rule" guides students in unpacking the structure of those Rules that are especially long and confusing;
"How This Rule Works in Practice" helps students understand each Rule's application, subpart by subpart, in 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.
