The Law Library is proud to announce that it has added a new title, Civil Procedure Before Trial: Claims and Defenses, to its collection. This title is a new volume in The Rutter Group’s California Practice Guide series.

Claims and Defenses is focused on providing a “concise overview of a broad range of causes of action commonly encountered in California civil litigation.” You’ll find an overview of the elements of, key defenses against, and main remedies for, dozens of claims.  Also, it includes references to key case law and statutory authority. Topics include torts, fraud, negligence, product liability, torts, employment, consumer rights, and civil rights. The title would be useful in preparing a complaint, answering a complaint, preparing a discovery plan, and in other areas.

Currently, the title is available solely as a print title at the Downtown branch in the new book section.
