There’s a rule for everything in California State Court litigation. The ones you have to follow to prepare and timely file and serve your document could be in the Code of Civil Procedure, the California Rules of Court, or, as is usually the case, both. There are mandatory court forms for various procedures as well. Litigation By The Numbers®, the 478-page California civil litigation handbook relied on by legal practitioners and their entire staff, brings all of those codes, rules, and forms together in one place, and explains the procedures step-by-step. More importantly, it’s updated every January and July to keep up with the code, rule, and form changes.

California Civil Litigation and Discovery (“CCLD” or “Companion”) (Rev. Jan. 2016)
Revised in January 2016, CCLD is a 218-page coil bound book. It takes a substantive approach to litigation, e.g., what the pleadings should say (naming parties, jurisdiction, stating elements of causes of action), rather than what they look like and how they are filed and served; discovery strategies and drafting hints (scope of discovery, discovery plans, drafting written discovery, objections, and responses) rather than format, limits, and deadlines, etc.
