Civil Procedure

Course Number: 
Henry C. Strickland


  • Glannon, Perlman & Raven-Hansen, Civil Procedure: A Coursebook (2011); and
  • Glannon, et al., Civil Procedure:  Rules, Statutes, and Other Materials—2013.

Note about the text:  I had the bookstore order the primary text in the loose leaf format because that version is cheaper and includes a downloadable ebook format at no additional charge.  The loose leaf format has holes for a standard three-ring binder, and I purchased a large binder to hold my copy.

Students are certainly free to use the regular hardbound format of the same book if they wish.  The hardbound version is the same and has the same page numbers.  I encourage students to purchase some hard copy format of the book (and not rely solely on the ebook format), though, because the exam may be open book and ebooks may not be accessed during the exam.


Assignment for the First Class (Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2012, at 10:30 a.m.):

  • Pages 1-36 in Glannon, et al, Civil Procedure: A Coursebook; and
  • Rules 1 and 2 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure in Civil Procedure: Rules, Statutes, & Other Materials—2013.
