Civil Procedure II focuses on litigation from the perspective of the litigator. It addresses the litigation process from filing the initial complaint through appeal, with the exception of the actual conduct of trial itself. Using the federal courts as a model, this course critically examines how the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure attempt to secure the just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of civil actions, as well as movements for their reform. Topics include: pleading, joinder of claims and parties, class actions, discovery and disclosure, case management, adjudication without trial, jury selection, post-trial motions, and appellate review.
