Want an efficient way to learn and memorize your 1L Civil Procedure course content? Brainscape’s collection of +360 flashcards work with your brain’s hardwiring to help you efficiently and conveniently memorize large volumes of content, such as you’ll find in Civil Procedure!

Developed by a team of attorneys and legal educators

Brainscape's Civil Procedure flashcards were developed by a team of Attorneys from UCLA School of Law, along with learning scientists from Yale and Columbia Universities. The team recognized that the tools provided in full-service bar review programs (BarBri, Kaplan, Themis, etc.) were not aligned with the demands of today’s bar exam, which requires you to quickly recall and apply bite-sized portions of law content.

Brainscape’s team spent thousands of hours researching existing Civil Procedure prep content, scouring past exams, and breaking down the curriculum into the most convenient and digestible form possible. We then tested our sample flashcards with dozens of top law students, and now THOUSANDS have used our flashcards to master Civil Procedure and study for the bar exam more efficiently.

The most comprehensive Civil Procedure study supplement

Brainscape’s Civil Procedure supplementary course contains +360 flashcards that provide an in-depth review of all major subject areas, including Foundational Concepts, Jurisdiction & Venue, Erie & Injunctions, and more. Armed with this collection, which you can access via the web or mobile app for iOS or Android, you can establish the healthy daily study habits that will see you fully prepared, come exam time.

Brainscape helps you learn faster and remember for longer

The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.

Our"secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of civil procedure content at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.
