Civil Procedure Tutoring FAQ
Civil procedure is a practical and logical part of law school curriculum. It's the course that teaches new law students how courts run and the rules and procedures that must be followed. Civil procedure teaches about who can sue, when they can sue, and what deadlines must be followed. It can be a dense and difficult course to master, but private instruction can clarify your studies immensely. Civil procedure tutoring can assist students who are struggling to understand how complaints and answers work. For example, a defendant who is served has twenty days to file an answer, but a defendant who waives service gets more time. What does waiver of service entail? For that matter, what makes a proper complaint? It is in civil procedure coursework where most students learn that a complaint states who the parties to the lawsuit are, why the venue is proper, what events led up to the suit, and what the plaintiff is asking for the court to do.
Civil procedure tutoring can help students understand the differences between various discovery tools, such as subpoenas, requests for production, oral and written depositions, and interrogatories. Each of these options can serve a different purpose and may be used differently in a case. Think of law classes as practice time. Each of these options also has different rules - for example, the limits on the number of questions, or the time to respond - and it can be difficult for a student to remember them all. Nobody wants to be presenting in court and be unsure as to how to proceed. Law school is intensive and provides the experience needed to enable a student to think on their feet before they ever set foot in a courtroom. There are lots of facts to know, but it's also about developing the mental acuity required of an effective lawyer.
Oftentimes, the most complicated part of a civil procedure course is not learning the rules in the abstract, but putting everything together. Fact patterns will frequently look at whether the defendant was properly served to begin the suit and whether the case is before the proper court. These fact patterns will require students to piece everything together in order to properly understand the situation and answer the questions professors are asking. Lessons are set up to imitate real cases. Students are presented with the facts and must work with them based on what they've learned. Good classroom performance can therefore equate to ultimately becoming a good lawyer. It can help to think of every lesson as an actual case. How would you handle it? What is the most desirable outcome? Which is the best course of action to follow that will maximize the chances of achieving that result?
Civil procedure is usually one of the first classes a student will take in law school, and as such, it has its own challenges. Whatever a student doesn't know, they'll begin to apply right away. Varsity Tutors has the ability to connect you with tutors who have expertise in this complex and often misunderstood discipline. It's important to connect with skilled tutors who can help you understand how civil procedure works and how to dissect law school fact patterns. Civil procedure tutoring can help new students understand this important area of law and acclimate to the new way of handling exams. By helping newer students prepare outlines and study guides, experienced law students and practicing lawyers can provide guidance, advice, and assistance with some of the most confusing fact patterns that a first-year student will face.

Recent Civil Procedure Tutoring Session Notes
Today we worked on trigonometry and solving for angle and side lengths with tangents, sine and cosine. The student has a good understanding on how to use the equations especially after we went over the inverse of them. She should do well on her test on Thursday.
I worked with the students on sample OLSAT questions. Both students did well. Even when they missed an answer, they were able to explain the correct answer after prompting. I also worked on literary response/connections using a picture book and the O.W.L.S. connection strategy.
I went over the student's math homework with her. We worked on fractions and mixed numbers, reviewing what she had learned in class, and applying it to her work. She worked very well and was very engaged, and seemed to be more comfortable with the material the more we practiced.
With the second student I reviewed algebra inequalities for her test tomorrow. We went over what inequalities are, how to graph them on a number line, and how to solve them using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We also did several practice word problems and talked about some strategies for her test, especially taking her time and showing her work. She was also very engaged and worked hard the entire time. Overall, both girls were great students and the session went very well.
Today the student and I went over some concepts in single variable inequalities as well as two variable inequalities. He did well with the concepts, and should do well with his homework and the rest of the week. I introduced the concept of inequalities in two variable with two equations, and he seemed to grasp this quite well. The lesson on Wednesday should solidify his understanding of the idea further. He is beginning to correct his own mistakes, as he looks over the problem he just did. It is nice to see his growth in Math.
The student reworked two of her three essays before we met this evening, and the structure and organization did a 180 (in a positive direction) from yesterday. As a result, this evening, we were able to focus on grammar, word choice, and sentence structure. She came away with two great essays and the knowledge for structuring / organizing a solid third essay.
In this session, the student and I reviewed some of her questions from chapter 8 homework and covered chapter 9: inequalities and absolute value. This included roster versus set-builder notation, unions and intersections of sets of numbers, graphing linear inequalities, and graphing systems of linear inequalities. We graphed conjunctions and disjunctions on a number line and determined whether an ordered pair was a solution for a certain inequality. The last topic we covered was how to find the solution of a system of linear inequalities and that is by graphing both and finding the intersection. We did this on graph paper and the student did a great job. After assigning homework, we covered a few grammar questions she had about subject-verb agreement for collective nouns. We also discussed the schedule for our last sessions before the placement test. Keep up the good work!
