A Practical Approach to Civil Procedure guides the reader through the procedural requirements employed in the civil courts. The volume provides an overview of the key statutory provisions, rules, practice directions, and case law which govern the various stages of a civil litigation claim. Providing practical guidance, the text charts the progress of a typical civil litigation claim, from funding litigation and issuing and serving proceedings, through to trial, enforcement, and appeal. Full coverage of alternative dispute resolution is also included. Relevant sample documentation is featured throughout and introduces the forms and documents which will be encountered in practice, while key points summaries featured at the end of chapters highlight the essential points covered. This edition has been revised to incorporate rule changes up to the Civil Procedure (Amendment) Rules 2020 and the 117th Update. Changes incorporated into the new edition include changes to civil procedure brought about by Brexit, a fuller treatment of the Hague Convention 2005, and a new chapter on remote hearings. Case law developments include the Supreme Court decision on the court's inherent jurisdiction in Dring v Cape Intermediate Holdings Ltd, Lomax v Lomax on compulsory reference to early neutral evaluation, and various cases on quia timet injunctions and qualified one-way costs shifting.
