1st edition by William Blake Odgers published in 1891

The appearance of the 23rd edition of Odgers formerly Odgers' Principles of Pleading and Practice in Civil Actions in the High Court of Justice marks the centenary year of this text on the law of civil procedure. Designed for both degree-level and professional students, Odgers has also proved an interesting handbook for day to day use by practitioners.

The 23rd edition has been fully updated to take account of numerous developments in the area. The main changes envisaged by the Courts and Legal Services Bill have been considered. Among the topics examined are the new rules on pleading in personal injury cases, the new time limits for service of writs and the developments in the Mareva Injunction.

A collection of precedents is provided and the author has included in this edition the recommendations of the Civil Justice Review.
