Civil Procedure II

B534 is taught by C. Geyh, A. Parrish, Quintanilla

This threecredit course focuses on the legal framework governing civil litigation. While we may discuss state law from time to time, the course emphasizes federal civil procedure. In Civil Procedure II, we will cover the following topics: personal jurisdiction, subject matter jurisdiction, notice, venue, transfer, forum non conveniens, the Erie doctrine, and the preclusion doctrines. While introducing you to key jurisdictional doctrines and key policies underlying procedural law, the course is intended to help you learn to read complex cases effectively and to think analytically. You will also be exposed to professionalism issues.
