Thank you for buying this book.

The CrunchTime Series is intended for people who want Emanuel quality, but don’t have the time or money to buy and use the full-length Emanuel Law Outline on a subject. We’ve designed the Series to be used in the last few weeks (or even less) before your final exams.

This book includes the following features, some of which have been extracted from the corresponding Emanuel Law Outline on Civil Procedure:

  •    Flow Charts — We’ve reduced most principles of Civil Procedure to a series of 13 Flow Charts and Tables, not published in the full-length Emanuel or elsewhere. We think these will be especially useful on open-book exams. A list of all the Flow Charts and Tables is printed on p. 2.
  • Capsule Summary — This is a 125-page or so summary of the subject. We’ve carefully crafted it to cover the things you’re most likely to be asked on an exam. The Capsule Summary starts on p. 21.
  • Exam Tips — We’ve compiled these by reviewing dozens of actual essay questions asked in past law-school and bar exams, and extracting the issues and “tricks” that surface most often on exams. Although there are also Exam Tips in the full-length Emanuel, the ones here are much more extensive. The Exam Tips start on p. 151.
  • Short-Answer questions — These questions are generally in a Yes/No format, with a “mini-essay” explaining each one. The questions start on p. 209.
  •    Multiple-Choice questions — These are in a Multistate-Bar-Exam style. They were created specially for this CrunchTime and have never been published elsewhere. They start on p. 265.
  •    Essay questions — These questions are actual ones from past Harvard Law School exams, together with our extensive model answers. They start on p. 297.

Good luck in your Civil Procedure course. If you’d like any other publication from Aspen, you can find it at your bookstore or at www.AspenLaw.com.
