Civil procedure is totally fascinating and this is a pretty good E&E. The rules of subject-matter and in personam jurisdiction, removal, lass actions, and venue set the stage for the intricate game of the civil trial. The advanced concepts like transference of venue and which venue's law controls are pure logic-game fun. I'm actually serious.

What can I say? My CivPro professor assigned this in lieu of a casebook. For this I am grateful. Glannon makes the subject about as palatable and accessible as it can be. However, as it is a first-year law school textbook, I necessarily have love-hate relationship with it, so please view the rating accordingly (in an apples-and-oranges sense, that is; I am not saying that the CivPro E&E is "better" than The Sea Wolf.

Though I did not finish the book, I read and completed the exercises that were relevant to my Civ Pro classes. The main reason I found this E&Es to be better than others (e.g. Contracts, Crim Law), is that Professor Glannon balances explaining the material and providing practice exercises.

That said, there were also good alternatives to reading this book, such as Civ Pro flash cards.

This book made CivPro much easier. The questions at the end of each chapter are where the money is.

Yep, that's right. Go Glannon. A law student/federal law clerk/litigator's best friend .... sigh.

A must read for the first year law student. It doesn't go through enough the first year material to sufficiently prepare a student for their final, but it does cover important material.
It was pretty helpful in understanding civil procedure. It was actually required reading in my civ pro class.
