Coleman, Stempel, Baicker-McKee, Herr, and Kaufman's Learning Civil Procedure, 3rd Edition
Learning Civil Procedure provides a broad, student-centered, user-friendly approach to civil procedure that is both clear and sophisticated. Students build mastery of the material through the presentation of examples and analyses. Students then move on to involved problems similar to what they will encounter on final examinations, bar examinations, and as lawyers. The book makes great use of problems to facilitate dialogue in class and correspondingly uses many fewer case excerpts than does the typical casebook. Students will emerge as competent and culturally literate lawyers because the book also includes the core "canon" of civil procedure opinions as well as sufficient historical background. For those teachers who want more cases and supporting material, the accompanying website includes edited versions of additional civil procedure cases, exam questions, multiple choice practice questions, and a Comprehensive Study Guide. Learning Civil Procedure is a book designed by authors who both teach and litigate, making it the perfect tool for ensuring that students are ready for the classroom, the bar exam, and real-world litigation practice.
