Pre-Modern Civil Procedure

David L. Noll, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, School of Law-Newark, has published A Reader's Guide to Pre-Modern Procedure. Here is the abstract.

This short essay fills a minor but consequential gap in the civil procedure literature. Many sources describe the general badness of procedural systems that predated the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure but few describe how those systems actually worked. This essay — intended as a reference for law students, law professors, and anyone else required to read and make sense of archaic judicial opinions — does just that.
