Whether you're practising in the High Court or County Court, you will need The Green Book. It is the essential guide to bringing, defending and appealing civil proceedings. It provides focused, authoritative and comprehensive coverage of the CPR from experts including Lord Justices of Appeal, District Judges and leading practitioners and is fully cross-referenced to Butterworths Civil Court Precedents.

The Green Book is known for its clear, comprehensive and pertinent explanation of the Rules, the cases and their application. This detailed coverage is unrivalled by other texts on civil procedure and places The Green Book firmly at the top of the litigation tree. All the information you could need is contained in two main volumes with nothing archived.

  • Volume 1 Reissue and Procedure & Guidance Supplement are published in October 2016
  • The Main Work is published in April 2016
Available in 4 formats - book, CD-ROM, eBook and online as part of the Civil Procedure menu. The Green Book can be with you wherever and whenever. The 2016 edition includes all of the most recent updates to the CPR, including the Civil Procedure (Amendment) Rules 2014 and the Civil Procedure (Amendment No 2) Rules 2014.

Volume One examines procedure in the civil courts and contains the Civil Procedure Rules 1998, the RSC, CCR and Protocols. This volume is reissued in October as part of the annual subscription; there are also updating supplements throughout the year and a regular newsletter, Civil Court News, containing case summaries and articles.

Volume Two covers general and more specific jurisdiction of the civil courts, including Appeals to the Supreme Court, Companies, Personal Injury, Contempt of Court and Mental Capacity and Mental Health. A separate forms supplement sets out all available forms listed in CPR PD 4, together with additional useful forms.

Your subscription price also includes the title on our new bespoke app LexisNote, allowing you to highlight and annotate the text and automatically get updates throughout the year. A second supplement contains the Procedural Tables, the fees and up-to-date court guides for easy desk-top reference. The Procedural Tables assist in complicated or lengthy procedures which have to be completed quickly, minimising the risk of error.

Essential commentary and explanatory notes are included throughout, written by an expert editorial board, including Lord Justices of Appeal, QBD and Chancery Masters, District Judges and leading practitioners. A CD-ROM provides the full text of both main volumes and both supplements, as well as the complete set of fillable and downloadable forms.
