This article discusses the challenges that exist for law school professors in teaching Civil Procedure to first-year law students. The main challenges that exist relate to the subject area of the material and the difficulty for the students in understanding the subject based on a traditional casebook approach. To remedy these challenges, the article recommends a text-case-note-problem method to teaching Civil Procedure. The article explains each aspect of this method and the benefits of using this method instead of the traditional approach of sequentially reading cases.
