Skills a Values: Discovery Practice is designed to serve as an introduction to the practical application of the discovery rules. The book and the companion Web Course introduce each discovery topic briefly and then provide a context and structure for exercises and self-study. Skills a Values: Discovery Practice can be used by a professor teaching a full pre-trial course, or one focused just on discovery law. It can be used alone or in conjunction with another pre-trial text. It can be used with the problem set provided in the appendix and in the Web Course or with a professor?s own problem set. It also can be used in a mentorship program in a civil litigation law firm. Each chapter of the book offers an introduction to the key aspects of discovery and then offers exercises that focus on the governing Federal Rule of Civil Procedure (FRCP). The chapters are organized in the order that the discovery rules are most commonly used. The exercises at the end of each chapter ask the student to put the governing rules into action by actually drafting the discovery documents described in the preceding chapter.
