507T Civil Procedure Howard P. Fink
We will begin the first class with discussion of the ideas suggested by your old friend "Oh, the Places You'll Go." Perhaps you have copy stained with Gerber's, but it raises serious issues about life in law school. Next, we will begin discussion of Chapter One of the casebook. After page 20, read the hand-out on Pleading. Then we will finish Chapter One. This will take us several classes. After Chapte One, we will go on to Chapter Nine.
I do expect very regular class attendance and preparation. Good luck.<
