Civ Pro 2nd Semester...

Postby RR320 » Wed Jan 18, 2012 11:06 am

My school splits civ pro into two semesters. Last semester we did PJ, SMJ, & Erie. This semester on the syllabus I see pleading, injuctive relief, discovery, resolution w/o trial, appeals, respect for judgment, preclusion, joinder, and class actions.

I really did not think last semester was bad, but does this stuff tend to be more complex?

IMO no. It will depend on how your prof tests you on those issues though. If he uses complex fact patterns with lots of different parties then preclusion and joinder can be tricky but I still find them both easier than PJ and Erie.

Not really. It builds on the first stuff, but its in the same line of thinking.

Not more complex, but it felt different from the Jurisdictional side of Civ Pro. The joinder rules are a pain in the ass to learn, but they aren't hard to apply once you've got them figured out. Freer's BarBri lecture is still helpful.
