Described by many lawyers as the bible of New York practice, Siegel’s Hornbook on New York Practice serves as the complete guide to civil practice in New York state courts, with a broad perspective in each subject. Used by students, lawyers, and judges alike and cited in thousands of New York cases, it discusses such topics as statutes of limitations, personal jurisdiction, appearance, venue, parties, papers, pleadings, motion practice, accelerated judgment, provisional remedies, disclosure, pretrial incidents, judgment, arbitration, and res judicata. The hornbook addresses pitfalls for practicing attorneys and judges. To eliminate the gap between what a student learns in law school and what a new lawyer actually needs to know in practice, the book starts from scratch on subjects, rather then assuming knowledge. This time-saving reference guide contains a Westlaw appendix; expert commentary; footnote citations to leading court decisions; and tables of cases, statutes and court rules.

    This review is from: New York Practice, 5th Edition, Student Edition (Paperback)

    I practice law in four states, of which NY is one. I ordered this book because I needed a quick reference guide for NY-specific questions that would arise periodically as I worked on NY litigation matters. In some areas, this text is very helpful in describing exactly how to handle a particular situation. In other areas, notably specific procedural issues, the text offers much in the way of academic commentary, but not much helpful guidance on what to do in practice.

    After perusing the reviews for this “student edition” and reviews for the much more expensive practitioners’ edition, I ordered the student edition because it did not appear that there was much substantive difference between the two editions.
