Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today we're focusing more on Joinder, or who can and who must be party to a civil lawsuit. In particular, we look at intervention, impleader (or third-party action), and class actions. We previously covered permissive and required joinder in Bar Exam Toolbox podcast episode 145.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The five types of joinder
  • Intervention as a right and permissive intervention
  • When impleader (or third-party action) comes up
  • What is a class action?
  • Examples illustrating the different types of joinder we cover in the episode
