The newest addition to the Washington Practice series is Washington Elements of an Action (vol. 29). This soft-back volume consists of 21 chapters covering distinct causes of action such as:
Each chapter describes the elements of action, authority (statutory and caselaw), jury instructions, defenses, counterclaims, and remedies. Checklists and sample complaints, jury verdict summaries, jury instructions, and other selected court documents are included. “Research References” at the end of each chapter identify sections in other Washington Practice volumes, relevant West Key Numbers, ALR annotations, and legal encyclopedia citations.
A table of cases and an index appear at the back of the volume. You will find Elements of an Action shelved with the rest of Washington Practice. KFW80.W3 at Reference Area. The Washington Practice series, including this new volume, is also available on Westlaw (WAPRAC).
