Litigation Realities

By Kevin M. Clermont and Theodore Eisenberg


After both summarizing recent empirical work and presenting new observations on each of the six phases of a civil lawsuit (forum, pretrial, settlement, trial, judgment, and appeal), the authors draw a series of lessons for understanding and using empirical methods in the study of the legal system\u27s operation. In so doing, they generate implications for current and projected policy debates concerning litigation, while identifying areas that demand further empirical work
