Civil Procedure: about this course

About Civil Procedure

We will study the procedures, principles, and rules that courts in the United States use to resolve civil disputes (not criminal cases).  We will focus primarily on federal courts, examining the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (the “FRCP”), Title 28 of the United States Code (the “Judicial Code”), the United States Constitution, and Supreme Court opinions construing them.  Beyond learning procedural law, we will examine strategic, ethical, professional, and economic considerations pertinent to United States civil litigation.
