Principles of Civil Procedure provides an accessible overview of how cases are presented and resolved before the New Zealand courts under the District and High Court Rules.

The book easily fulfils its aim of identifying the principles, themes, and practice requirements that underpin the system of civil procedure as a whole. It provides excellent insights into the diverse and significant procedural questions that come before New Zealand’s courts.

First published in 1992, the first edition focused on the High Court Rules. The current edition was published in 2002. It was extensively rewritten to cover major changes in the following decade, including active case management, written briefs of evidence, and harmonisation of the District Courts Rules.

Principles of Civil Procedure is a handy resource for anyone who wants a concise and authoritative overview of procedure in New Zealand’s courts.
