Product Description:

This innovative casebook, written by an outstanding team of Civil Procedure scholars and teachers, is more informative, transparent, and accessible than a typical casebook. For example, Civil Procedure provides an introduction to each case to help students understand the context for the opinion and to flag important issues to look for while reading the case. After each case, the book provides textual materials and questions, but, unconventionally, the book answers almost all of the questions that are posed. The book has short chapters of manageable scope and uses a different font and a shaded border for the text of opinions. The book also includes multiple choice questions to test students understanding of new concepts followed by an analysis. Each chapter ends with a summary of key concepts. The book also has a companion website and a Rules Supplement.

This casebook aims to be approachable and accessible for students and professors alike. Characteristics that take it out of the realm of typical casebooks include:

  • Different treatment of cases
    • Cases are selected to clarify and convey basic concepts
    • Brief, accessible introductions precede the cases and help students understand the opinions and guide them to the important issues
    • Author-written textual materials and questions with answersfollow the cases, facilitating students understanding of the issues and allowing professors to focus class time on sophisticated material
  • Different pedagogy
    • Shorter chapters make the material more manageable
    • Materials are organized with students and ease of study in mind: each chapter begins with a mini-table of contents and ends with a summary of the fundamental points covered in that chapter
    • Questions are presented in various formats, including multiple choice questions and issue analyses
    • Students are carefully walked through the thought processes involved in answering the questions
  • Different design

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?

4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
