Dorsaneo's Texas Litigation Guide, first published in 1977, is one of the library's most heavily used resources. This 26-volume set is updated quarterly to provide current information on litigation in Texas. The set is divided into 10 different units: Pretrial Practice, Trial Practice, Appellate Practice, Pleadings in Business Entity Litigation, Pleadings in Commercial Litigation, Pleadings in Real Estate Litigation, Pleadings in Personal Injury Litigation, Family Code Litigation, Probate Code Litigation, and Administrative Proceedings. Chapters are divided into 4 parts: legal background on a topic, a drafting guide, forms, and a research guide.
We have two copies of the Litigation Guide in print: one set that is always available for use in the library and another set whose volumes can be checked out overnight. An electronic copy is also available on the library's computers. Contact us at (512) 463-1722 or submit a question via our Ask a Librarian service if you have any questions.
