LAW 239 - Federal Civil Litigation Seminar.


In this seminar we will be discussing the history, development, and reform of the federal rules of civil procedure and then focus on a survey of some of the more contentious issues within federal practice and procedure. In the past such issues have included revisions to civil pleading standards, summary judgment practice, discovery reform, class action reform, internet jurisdiction, due process remittitur, managerial judging, and Rule 11 reform (not an exhaustive list). The issues covered would change slightly each time the course is taught to reflect what matters are of contemporary relevance and importance.Two hours.SpencerNot offered in 2011-2012.
