2019 Teacher's Manual forthcoming
Written by two litigators-turned-professors with more than forty years of combined experience in nationwide complex litigation, Practicing Civil Discovery is a nuanced, practice-focused simulation resource for learning the process of civil discovery. Ideal either as a primary, stand-alone coursebook for upper-level litigation “skills” courses or as a simulation companion for first-year civil procedure courses, this text provides context-setting orientations to each discovery tool and process, explains how each functions in practice, includes hypotheticals to refine acquired knowledge and prompt classroom discussion, and supplies exemplar samples to illustrate discovery in operation. The book begins with a memorable fact pattern that serves as a canvas for student exploration and application, and includes a comprehensive teacher’s manual.
