Written for upper-level law students who intend to practice law in California, this book emphasizes those aspects of California civil procedure that deviate from the federal system. California Civil Procedure aims to serve several functions. First, upon completion of a course using this casebook, students are prepared to more competently conduct civil litigation in the California courts upon graduation. Furthermore, this book represents the procedural advantages and disadvantages of litigating in California state courts as opposed to federal courts so new lawyers can make an informed choice between filing an action in one system or the other. This book also provides students with a brief summary of the federal or general position on each major topic as a basis of comparison and as a review of first-year civil procedure.

The case selection reinforces the perspective of a practitioner choosing knowledgably between state and federal court. The casebook addresses procedures unique to California practice that are not generally presented in the first-year course in civil procedure. Contains information on many state/federal differences in pleading, discovery, right to jury, alternative dispute resolution, res judicata, and appeals.
This annually revised handbook is designed to be used in conjunction with any Civil Procedure casebook. Contents include selected California court decisions, procedural statutes, and court rules, reproduced in their entirety. The selection is limited to those materials that demonstrate important differences between California and federal procedure. The handbook also contains textual materials that explain various topics, as well as numerous notes and questions designed to further analyze the reproduced cases and statutes. California Civil Procedure Handbook also contains the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and selected Rules Advisory Committee Notes, the United States Constitution, and selected federal procedural statutes.
