Skills & Values: Discovery Practice, Third Edition, is designed to serve as an introduction to the practical application of the discovery rules. The book introduces each discovery topic briefly and then provides a context and structure for exercises and self-study. Skills & Values: Discovery Practice can be used by a professor teaching a full pre-trial course, or one focused just on discovery law. It can be used alone or in conjunction with another pre-trial text, and it can be used with the problem set provided in the appendix or with a professor's own problem set. It also can be used in a mentorship program in a civil litigation law firm.

Each chapter of the book offers an introduction to the key aspects of civil discovery and then offers exercises that focus on the governing Federal Rule of Civil Procedure (FRCP). The chapters are organized in the order that the discovery rules are most commonly used, and the exercises at the end of each chapter ask the student to put the governing rules into action by actually drafting the discovery documents described in the preceding chapter.  The teacher’s manual provides rubrics for efficiently providing formative assessment on student work in the course, as well as suggested PowerPoints and other class materials.

The text also comes with supporting materials for students to interact with as they use the book, including links to the rules, quizzes and example documents.  The written text, together with the companion material, combine in a hybrid textbook that encourages students to leverage technology to support their learning, while still relying on a traditional printed book for chapters on each of the core concepts in civil discovery law.  The book covers the following topics:

  • Planning for Discovery
  • Initial Disclosure
  • Interrogatories and Answers to Interrogatories
  • Document Requests and Answers to Document Requests
  • eDiscovery
  • Motion to Compel Production
  • Expert Witness Disclosure
  • Depositions of Fact and Expert Witnesses
  • Requests for Admission and Answers to Requests for Admission
  • Motion in limine
  • Settlement
