Steve SubrinThe Nevada Law Journal recently released its summer 2015 issue — devoted to celebrating the scholarship of civil procedure legend Professor Steve Subrin, a member of the Northeastern University School of Law who retires this spring. The issue includes papers by leading scholars, who initially presented at a symposium, “Through a Glass Starkly: Civil Procedure Re-Assessed: Celebrating the Scholarship of Stephen Subrin,” held at Northeastern in 2014 and co-sponsored by the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas .

“The pages are filled with insightful reflections from a veritable who’s who among today’s leaders exploring the link between procedural rules and substantive fairness,” said Dean Jeremy Paul. “As wholly appropriate, Steve closes the volume with his own “Reflections," in which he celebrates bravery, valorizes interdisciplinary study, links equity to law and makes one more valiant stand — we know it won’t be the last — in support of the jury trial.”

Since joining the Northeastern law faculty in 1970, Subrin has published extensively on civil procedure, with an emphasis on procedural reform and the historical background of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. He has taught Civil Procedure, Evidence, Complex Litigation, Alternative Dispute Resolution, Federal Courts and the Federal System, and Civil Trial Practice. He is coauthor of a seminal casebook, Civil Procedure: Doctrine, Practice, and Context. With Professor Margaret Y.K. Woo, he has written a text about American civil procedure for the Chinese legal community, published in Chinese, and Litigating in America, Civil Procedure in Context.
