Disclosure provides an authoritative and detailed analysis of the law relating to the process whereby parties to an action disclose to each other all documents relating to the action. It examines both substantive law and procedure, discussing the "who, what, how and when" of disclosure obligations and explaining the implications of non-compliance.

The new edition incorporates recent revisions to the Civil Procedure Rules which have expanded the law relating to disclosure, in particular CPR 31.16 (Disclosure before proceedings start) and 31.17 (Orders for Disclosure against a person not a party). It is also up to date with significant case law such as the House of Lords decision in BCCI v. Bank of England (on legal professional privilege).

  • The 2nd Supplement was published in December 2010

  • Includes the relevant extracts from the CPR together with related Practice Directions and Forms
