Complex Litigation

Course Description
This is an advanced civil procedure course focusing on a number of important aspects of civil procedure which are only superficially considered in the first year.

The procedures considered include: joinder of parties and structure of law suits in complicated multi-party suits; duplicative litigation and use of stay orders, injunctions, consolidation, transfer to a more convenient forum, and transfer to the Multi District Panel; class actions; discovery and trial in complex cases; and res judicata and collateral estoppel. (2 credits)
