The law of limitations is complex and incoherent. Limitation periods vary depending on the type of action - with over 150 statutory time limits appropriate to specific causes of action - and exceptions exist to the rules.

Limitation Periods, the leading text in the field, steers practitioners through the complexities. A significant number of cases on limitations have been decided since publication of the previous edition and these are incorporated into the text.

  • The 1st Supplement was published in November 2008
  • Gives detailed guidance on time limitations in all areas of law, from preliminary issues to proceedings
  • Helps practitioners manage casework so that actions are begun within the required period
  • Sets out the time limits for commencing different types of action
  • Explains what happens when time has expired
  • Points out the many exceptions to the rules
  • Explains the implications of recent case law
  • Covers European and international limitation period issues
