Civil Litigation is a self-contained reference book, designed for use as a core text on the Legal Practice Course. Using illustrations, precedents, and diagrams it describes the civil litigation process, from obtaining instructions through to trial and enforcement of judgments. This edition includes all recent changes to the Civil Procedure Rules and the subsequent case law.

The text also includes examples to show specimen Directions from the fast track, multi-track and where Part 36 payments and offers have been made, highlighting to students the practical application of the procedures covered. It has also been updated to be more accessible to students, and includes a number of key point summaries and flowcharts. The section on the impact of the Human Rights Act on civil litigation introduces students to an increasingly important area which will be crucial in practice.

The guide highlights what students should understand before going into practice and its practitioner focus prepares them for the more comprehensive texts they will use once they have completed the Legal Practice Course.
