Season 1, Ep. 455

In this episode, Susan E. Provenzano, William Trumbull Professor of Practice at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, and Brian N. Larson, Associate Professor of Law at Texas A&M University School of Law, discuss their article "Civil Procedure as a Critical Discussion," which will be published in the Nevada Law Journal. They begin by explaining the purpose of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and why they were enacted. Then they describe "pragma-dialectics" and classical "stasis" theory, and how those theories can inform our understanding of civil procedure. Larson is on Twitter at @Rhetoricked.
