The Glannon Guide to Civil Procedure

Glannon Guides can help you better understand your classroom lecture with straightforward explanations of tough concepts with hypos that help you understand their application. Both correct and incorrect answers are explained; you learn why a solution does or does not work.  Glannon Guides provide straightforward explanations of complex legal concepts, often in a humorous style that makes material stick.
Available as part of the Law Library's subscription to the Wolters-Kluwer Online Study Aid Library.

Examples and Explanations for Civil Procedure

Each E&E offers hypothetical questions complemented by detailed explanations that allow you to test your knowledge of the topics in your courses and compare your own analysis. The Examples & Explanations series has been ranked the most popular study aid among law students because it is equally as helpful from the first day of class through the final exam. Available in print and through the Law Library's subscription to the Wolters Kluwer Study Aids Library.

Treatises and forms

Treatises are usually multi-volume works that provide an in-depth discussion of a topic. These are not typical study aids, but may be useful for the student who wants to go further in researching a specific topic. The links below take you to the electronic version of two of the most authoritative treatises in the field.

Form books can help students see what common documents like complaints, answers, or motions should look like. In addition to Bender's Federal Forms, listed below, you can find forms in the Westlaw, and Practicing Law Institute PLI Plus databases. For example, try West's Federal Forms, District Courts--Civil. In PLI Plus, select Browse then Forms.
