  • Goes through statute and case law to illustrate when a declaratory judgment can be granted.
  • Highlights the advantages of using declaratory proceedings.
  • Shows how to bring a case before the court.
  • Explains the jurisdiction of the High Court, county courts and tribunals to grant declarations.
  • Examines in detail who is entitled to bring proceedings for declaratory relief – both claimant and defendant.
  • Includes a comparative study of the use of the declaratory process in Scotland.
