A description of the Northern District of Georgia's two-year rules revision project. The author is a former law clerk with the court and was research assistant to the court's rules committee during the revision. This paper was written to facilitate the rules revision process in other trial courts by sharing the experiences of Northern Georgia. It is intended to be a "how-to-do-it" presentation. It does not address the philosophical considerations that influence the content of specific rules in the nation's trial courts.
