Now updated to reflect the most recent amendments to the Federal Rules and developments in case law, The Pretrial Process addresses issues associated with basic civil litigation tasks such as drafting pleadings, interviewing and counseling clients, developing facts, preparing interrogatories, taking depositions, and filing motions. The Pretrial Process covers all stages of pretrial litigation comprehensively, pragmatically, and succinctly without being over-simplified.
