I'll say it because it needs to be said: Another casebook on civil procedure? In a genre that is overflowing with similar offerings, one must really ask if the authors have anything new, or distinctive, to say on the matter. Nevertheless, it would be foolish to blame only Friedenthal, Miller, Sexton, and Hershkoff: Like the audiences of dreary sequels to 'Saw,' law students keep lapping up these page-turners year after year after year.

Arthur Miller IS Civil Procedure

I took CivPro from Arthur Miller, and the supposed difficulty of CivPro was non-existent for me. Arthur Miller has a way of distilling complex rules into easy-to-memorize bullet points and logic flows. To this day, I can still remember some of the case names and what their holdings are, and I don't even practice law!!
I can't imagine a better CivPro casebook than this one. If your CivPro professor uses this book, consider yourself lucky.
Wanna know the ins and outs of civil procedure in the American legal system? Go join a law firm. Wanna cram the basics of civil procedure in your head over the course of a few months and try to regurgitate it on an exam? Then maybe this book is for you.
That's it. It's over. I finished my first year of law school. I'm gonna spend the next three months doing nothing but watching TV.
I though the casebook was OK, but I think the cases are perhaps less important in civil procedure than in other classes.
Only in America would the leading case on the personal jurisdiction doctrine be called Burger King v. Rudzewicz.
Make sure your Aquaslide is genuine. If you are working on a summary judgment motion, cite Celotex.

Yet another good casebook to teach law school students the basics of the law.
Very in depth hornbook.
