Abstract

The Concepts and Methods of Federal Civil Procedure

 

David A. Dittfurth

 

(1999).


 

Like most civil procedure books, Concepts and Methods of Federal Civil Procedure is modeled on the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.  Concepts and Methods of Federal Civil Procedure, however, explains the special constitutional scope of federal judicial power and details the constraints on any court’s jurisdiction over defending parties before describing the application of various Rules.  David Dittfurth stresses the interplay of procedural and substantive law, discussing procedural rules in a substantive context in order to make sense of the material.  Easily accessible to individuals with no background in procedure, Concepts and Methods of Federal Civil Procedure introduces law students to the complexities of federal jurisdiction and procedure by including summaries as hypothetical problems designed to demonstrate the uses of the book’s rules and case decisions.
