Course Description

 This course is designed to highlight the important differences between the various rules of procedure governing practice in the Arizona state courts and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which are addressed extensively in the first-year Civil Procedure courses.

This course specifically addresses critical differences including jurisdiction, venue, service of process, offers of judgment, mandatory disclosures, nonparties at fault, compulsory arbitration, right to a jury trial, jury instructions, non-unanimous verdicts, special actions, the duties of lawyers, and the courts' & State Bars power to sanction attorney conduct.

This course is intended to be highly relevant and helpful for any student planning to be a civil practitioner in Arizona. Guest speakers, including attorneys and judges, will provide added perspectives on how the procedural rules affect their practices.

If you are going to practice civil law in Arizona, this course provides you with a broad understanding of the Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure, various local rules, and the policies underlying those rules. This course is designed to provide you with the tools to spot potential thorny issues before you start representing clients in civil litigation in the Arizona state courts.
