This ground-breaking book on legal theory and civil procedure helps law students understand and apply Critical Theory to a core course within the law school curriculum. Clarifying the theory in Critical Race Theory, Critical Feminist Theory, and the growing number of "outsider" stances against the received tradition, the author challenges the widely held view that criticalists are a monolithic group of legal scholars who present an imminent danger to American law.

Raising the question of whether federal procedure (including Federal Rules of Civil Procedure) would be different today if the views of people of color and women were consciously and systematically taken into account, Critical Procedure adds intellectual richness and awareness to the fields of civil procedure and legal theory.
