Summary

More than most legal educators, civil procedure professors recognize the need to teach their students how arcane legal rules apply to real human problems. This book is designed to help students to do just that. It consists of a human drama, the fear faced by a young lawyer, accused (perhaps falsely) of possessing child pornography. If the aggressive Internet journalist publishes his article revealing her secret, she will be destroyed. Can the plaintiff's lawyer save her? Can the defendant's lawyer protect important First Amendment rights? This book puts students in the role of counselors and introduces them to issues surrounding pleading, motions involving personal and subject matter jurisdiction, discovery, summary judgment and more. The teacher's manual explains how professors adopting this book can integrate it into their civil procedure class and how to give students the chance to begin practicing law on their first day of law school.
