This 750 page book is structured so it can be taught quickly but at a high level. The tightly edited cases capture students’ interest while teaching the material well. Notes are short but intellectually challenging. The book has enough materials to cover topics basically or in depth. The casebook introduces students to the themes running through civil procedure: efficiency and fairness, advantages and disadvantages of the adversarial system, real-life litigation strategies, and issues of federalism and separation of powers. The teacher's manual suggests strategies for teaching the materials and different approaches for credit allocations and teacher preferences.
