Legalese to English:
Civil Procedure

By: Elura Nanos, Esq. & Michele Sileo, Esq.

Legalese to English: Civil Procedure is the first volume in a groundbreaking series of law-school study guides. The step-by-step approach set forth in Legalese to English is one that has already propelled thousands of students to the top of their law-school classes. The authors use their signature straight-talking style to break down tough cases and concepts into simple, manageable components. What’s more, this is the first study guide truly written for students.

The print volumes contain the major documents of the legislative history of the Act, comprising more than 10,000 pages. Because of the voluminous size of some of the bill drafts, related bills and hearings, it is not feasible to include them all in the hardbound volumes. Supplemental materials to this legislative history are included in the accompanying DVD, which contains the core collection as well as an additional 11,000 pages of documents. Scholars and practitioners conducting an in-depth investigation into this health care reform legislation will find the expanded materials on the DVD well suited to their research needs.


Session Laws Update

Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, and Oklahoma Back to Inception!
This month, we have taken Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, and Oklahoma back to inception in the Sessions Laws Library! With the addition of the back files for these eight states, we now have the complete session laws of 42 U.S. states and the Canadian and Australian Acts of the Parliament, so there are only 8 states left to take back to inception!
HeinOnline's Session Laws Library is the only complete online source of all 50 states, and by October 1 we will have complete coverage for all states available back to inception. After that, we will continue to add new session laws as they are published.
We are pleased to announce we are now offering Digital Ownership of the Session Laws Library by individual state. This means you now have the opportunity to obtain ownership rights to PDF files of the scanned images of all pages of session laws for the state of your choosing.
