Course Details

American Legal Studies:Civil Procedure

This course, which is open only to students pursuing the LLM degree, will examine the process of US civil litigation. The course will study the key portions of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure governing a civil case. Special attention will be paid to those elements of U.S. civil procedure less commonly found in other systems, such as extensive discovery practice, the use of expert witnesses, relationships between state and federal courts, and class actions. If you have taken American Jurisprudence or Americal Legal Studies: Constitutional Law you should not take this course. Evaluation will be principally through a final examination but will also include formative assessments in the form of regular quizzes, which are tied to the casebook. Students have two purchasing options: (1) purchase a brand-new casebook, which comes with access to the quiz system for an additional $5.00 OR; (2) purchase a used casebook, and pay $29 for access to the quiz system directly to the system provider. Additional details are on the course’s Canvas site.
