Fall 2024 Course

Civil Procedure

Exam Type: One-Day Take-Home

The course in Civil Procedure is a survey course on the processes for addressing and resolving civil disputes. Part of the course will focus in-depth on the details of the process of litigation: pleading, discovery, motions to dismiss, summary judgment, and appeals.  The other part of the course will focus more on issues of jurisdiction—questions of judicial power to resolve a dispute between two (or more) parties, the allocation of such power among various courts, and the effect that these allocations of authority have on the outcome of litigation.We will address the areas of subject matter jurisdiction, personal jurisdiction, joinder, and res judicata.
