Professor Bryson's Handbook on Virginia Civil Procedure ("Handbook") which is now out in an expanded second edition, was written as an introduction to Virginia civil procedure for the students who study with him at the T.C. Williams School of Law at the University of Richmond. However, it will find an appreciative audience among two other distinct and occasionally overlapping groups of readers: active litigators who seek a ready reference on Virginia's civil-law procedures and practices, and legal history buffs who enjoy an excursus on the Anglo-American antecedents of Virginia's sometimes unique approach to civil litigation.
