CivPro Question

Postby thedive » Wed Sep 14, 2011 4:48 am

Sorry if this has been asked before, but our CivPro prof. started with the complaint and likewise the Conley/Twombly/Ashcroft cases which deals with Rule 8, etc. (plausible not merely possible). Is it still worthwhile to use the E&E book which starts with personal jurisdiction or will the book assume that you must learn jurisdiction first and always refer to the previous concepts and just confuse me? I'm also having trouble finding the exact, best fit, chapter to start with in the book. The good thing is that (I think) I have been doing pretty well in grasping and understanding the concepts so far without using the supplement, but in other classes each respective E&E supplement has been pretty awesome on top of the assigned readings.

There are a lot of independent subjects in CivPro; doing it out of order is fine. For instance, you don't need to know about personal jurisdiction to know about notice, and so forth. You're fine.

your professor has a reason for teaching it that way. Even if Glannon assumes you know particular topics, you should be able to use the book without getting too confused. I do suggest, however, trying out the Freer book, many think it's far better than Glannon, myself included. See which one works better with your professor's approach.
