Best Civil Litigation Guide

Postby 3LOL717 » Wed Jan 25, 2017 11:42 am

I know this is slightly random but does anyone have suggestions on a nutshell or something similar to the supplements used in law school for actual practice? I'm in litigation and as a junior associate a lot of the material I've dealt with related to civ pro and evidence are not subjects I've spent a lot of time thinking about in multiple years and while Google has been helpful, I didn't know if maybe the collective TLS community had a better suggestion. Thanks!

Wright & Miller is on Westlaw and ought to be your first stop for civ pro questions.

If you are consistently practicing in one jurisdiction, sometimes law firms will have "practice guides." These can be super helpful. One that comes to mind is Jenner & Block practice series. A lot of the docs are Illinois focused, but there are a few that are general fed court focused (I think there is one on SMJ and ERISA lit, if i recall correctly). Other firms may have similar materials.

State bar associations usually have practice guides for various areas. I would check the local website for CLE, etc.
