This course will survey a broad array of California civil procedure topics, including topics which may be tested on the California Bar Exam. Because a study of civil procedure requires extensive reference to the codified procedural rules, students will examine, among other rules: (1) statutory
provisions in the California Civil Procedure Code; (2) California Rules of Court; and (3) local court rules. Students will analyze through case law how the rules are applied. Finally, students will review litigation documents to observe how the procedural rules apply in practice.
