"There is no other book quite like this... It is a 'must' for the beginner – and also for the litigator who needs to brush up his or her skills." – New Law Journal
Widely regarded as the "bible" on the subject, this highly accessible work explains how the Civil Procedure Rules work in practice. It provides a step-by-step guide through all stages of a civil action from funding through to trial, costs, enforcement and appeals. The work has been specifically designed to accompany the reader through the litigation process applicable to most cases in the High Court and County Court, and through appeals to higher tiers. It is cross-referenced to Sweet & Maxwell's The White Book.
Highly practical, the book takes the reader through the various processes step-by-step, with liberal use of examples. It gives tactical and strategic guidance, and recommends systems that can be put in place to help cases run more smoothly. This edition has been fully updated with the latest changes relating to the ongoing reform and consolidation of the civil litigation process.
