Summary

Designed to introduce American civil litigation and process to a wide audience: foreign LL.M. students, beginning American law students, undergraduates interested in law, and foreign lawyers, judges, and law professors. This succinct new paperback Litigating in America: Civil Procedure in Context explains the institutional bases and legal meaning of our procedural system, and captures American civil process at a time of change. It presents American civil procedure from several vantage points: the procedural doctrine that has evolved over time; the practical implications of that doctrine; the social context in which the doctrine grew, is used and abused; and the global context of how other systems may have made different choices. It is an excellent supplement to any casebook.

The highly respected authors combine their distinctive skills to create the ideal teaching tool:

  • Stephen Subrin is nationally known for his scholarship in the field of civil litigation and procedure, and he is the senior author of Aspen's popular casebook Civil Procedure: Doctrine, Practice, and Context, Second Edition
  • Margaret Woo is a leading teacher and scholar in comparative law, who brings her sociological, anthropological and legal expertise to the book. She is the co-editor of East Asian Law: Universal Norms and Local Culture (Routledge 2003).

This new text:

  • explains American civil litigation and procedure and the social/historical/economic context out of which it evolved
  • explores the major themes underlying American legal institutions and civil litigation
  • captures American civil process at a crucial time of change in the early twenty-first century
  • highlights the interplay between legal rules, doctrine, practice, and culture
  • covers
