Civil jury trials have become increasingly popular, particularly in personal injury and defamation actions, since the Court of Sessions Act 1988 was passed. All aspects of civil jury trials are comprehensively covered, with the emphasis on the practical approach to raising, pursuing and defending such actions.

Virtually every recent reported and unreported case involving a jury trial is mentioned in the text, and the author has attempted to site all the relevant case law from 1816 to 1998.
