Text of the Rules, Title 28, and Constitution: A Student's Guide supplies what your students need--the text of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (as amended through December 1, 2017), the frequently-consulted sections of the U.S. Judiciary Code, and the text (with revision history) of the U.S. Constitution. This is where most Rules Supplements available to students stop, with just an austere reprinting of these texts. PLUS... Student-Friendly Orientation to Each Rule: But what 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. Two features (new in this edition) 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, and "The Architecture of this Rule" which helps students unpack those Rules that are especially long and confusing. These two features guide students in contextualizing and making sense out of the Rules at a Rule-by-Rule level. PLUS... Rule-Specific Functions and Nuances: Students often struggle to appreciate how the theory of a Rule operates in practice. A Student's Guide addresses that concern by supplying a final feature to each Rule discussion - "How this Rule Works in Practice" - designed to help students understand each Rule's function, subpart by subpart, and the real-world, practical applications and nuances of each subpart in practice. 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 text into a "finding aid" of sorts, as students work through applied problems in the context of the Rules. PLUS... An Overview of Companion 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 the text of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, introduced by a 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.
