Text of the Rules, Title 28, and Constitution: A Student's Guide supplies what your students need--the text of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (as amended through December 1, 2017), the frequently-consulted sections of the U.S. Judiciary Code, and the text (with revision history) of the U.S. Constitution. This is where most Rules Supplements available to students stop, with just an austere reprinting of these texts. PLUS... Student-Friendly Orientation to Each Rule: But what students often find challenging in studying Civil Procedure--and what is less likely to be found in either a casebook or a conventional study aid--is an understanding of how each Rule "fits" into the master scheme of federal civil practice generally. This edition of A Student's Guide offers students that very guidance. Two features (new in this edition) now follow the text of each Rule: "How This Rule Fits In" explains for students the context of each Rule and the role each plays in federal civil practice, and "The Architecture of this Rule" which helps students unpack those Rules that are especially long and confusing. These two features guide students in contextualizing and making sense out of the Rules at a Rule-by-Rule level. PLUS... Rule-Specific Functions and Nuances: Students often struggle to appreciate how the theory of a Rule operates in practice. A Student's Guide addresses that concern by supplying a final feature to each Rule discussion - "How this Rule Works in Practice" - designed to help students understand each Rule's function, subpart by subpart, and the real-world, practical applications and nuances of each subpart in practice. PLUS... Citations to Interpretative Case Law: Also unlike most other Rules Supplements, A Student's Guide provides students with select, leading interpretative case law analyzing the Rules and their subparts. This, then, converts this text into a "finding aid" of sorts, as students work through applied problems in the context of the Rules. PLUS... An Overview of Companion Federal Practice Concepts: Because many of the related core concepts of federal practice are an amalgam of law found in Rules, statutes, constitutional provisions, and case law, A Student's Guide bridges that gulf with quick, orienting discussions of central practice concepts like personal jurisdiction, subject-matter jurisdiction, removal, venue, forum non conveniens, the Erie Doctrine, and claim and issue preclusion. These distillations allow students to acquire a broad view of those related practice contexts. PLUS... A Handy Overview of Federal Appellate Practice: This edition of A Student's Guide also includes the text of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, introduced by a student-friendly overview of federal appellate practice. PLUS... A Helpful Orientation to the Rulemaking Process: A Student's Guide also includes a brief orientation for students to the process of federal rulemaking, how the Rules originally came into existence, and how they are amended.

Weissenberger's Michigan Civil Procedure Litigation Manual provides a thorough, yet concise, analysis of the Michigan Court Rules. It is intended to aid the practitioner, judge, and student alike in understanding the operation and application of the Rules in situations that recur throughout the course of litigation. Although this manual is not exhaustive of every procedural issue in Michigan, it is anticipated that it will function both to identify other additional sources on Michigan law as well as to resolve problems frequently engendered by the application of the Rules. Each chapter contains the full text of each Rule in a format that lends itself to easier examination and dissection than any other currently available. Practical commentary on each rule is also provided, as are hundreds of illustrations of possible applications. This publication also includes a list of additional Michigan authorities and a carefully-selected list of leading cases. These cases are intended to serve as starting points for additional research; comprehensive annotations are beyond the scope of this manual. This manual also contains a host of other useful features, including a directory of all clerks of court within the state of Michigan, a note on judicial rulemaking in Michigan, an appellate district map, official forms, and a table used to calculate the number of days between two dates, as well as the full text of the Michigan Rules of Appellate Procedure.
