Erie Doctrine Flowchart

Jonathan Board lives in West Virginia with his wife and two children.  A graduate of West Virginia University College of Law, he has also attended Harvard Extension School, Fairmont State University, Bob Jones University, and Witherspoon School of Law & Public Policy.

The Erie doctrine vexes law students year after year.  For that reason, Mr. Board created this flow chart to help struggling law students through their Civil Procedure courses.

Editor’s note:  Why publish a flowchart of the Erie doctrine on this site, “The Literary Lawyer”?  Because this site addresses all aspects of legal education and not just the humanities, and because flowcharts themselves are forms of visual rhetoric that have their own discursive purpose.  This site is as much about law as it is about literature and the other humanistic disciplines, and this site is particularly interested in issues of pedagogy, legal or otherwise.
