Richard D. Freer


This lively, accessible student treatise breaks down the complex principles of civil procedure into small, easily-digested bites, then builds them back up into a comprehensive model for students. Extremely well written by Richard Freer, popular BAR/BRI lecturer and casebook author, whose 1L video is shown in virtually every law school in the country, INTRODUCTION TO CIVIL PROCEDURE provides much-needed assistance for students struggling with this difficult area.Both students and instructors will appreciate these important features of Freer's method:covers all of the major topics in civil procedure, making the book suitable for use with any casebookeach chapter opens with a 'Defining the Issue' section that clearly explains the major concepts, provides context in commonsensical terms, and explains how the topics in the chapter differ from -- but fit in with -- other topicsintegrates the topics of the course and emphasizes overarching issues to help students fit the smaller pieces in the larger picture; for example, a student might understand the individual concepts of personal jurisdiction, subject matter jurisdiction, and venue, but not see that these three tie into one overarching issue: selection of a courteasily spotted bulleted lists provide hypotheticals for especially difficult principles -- such as aggregation and supplemental jurisdiction -- that show students how to apply the doctrine and rules to the factsIn addition, the book encourages students to have fun with the material by:discussing the Pete Rose case and the Liz Taylor-Richard Burton caserelating an amusing opinion in which a judge went ballisticwondering why the Mottleys, who had been injured by a railroad, would settle their claims for free passes on the same railroadAs the author says, 'This book is my avuncular present to students -- telling them what civil procedure is, why it matters, and, crucially, how the various doctrines fit together into a comprehensive whole.' Examine a copy of INTRODUCTION TO CIVIL PROCEDURE and see for yourself how well this award-winning teacher has succeeded.Richard D.
