Andrew Hajducki’s Civil Jury Trials is the only book dedicated to the law and practice governing the conduct of a case that goes to civil jury trial in Scotland. The subject is set in its historical context and the text then covers the progress of a case from choosing the mode of inquiry, through initial procedure and trial, to appeal and review. The use of the civil jury in Scotland has waxed and waned over the years, but the institution remains an integral part of the administration of justice, particularly in the determination of personal injuries awards. Civil jury trial was reintroduced into the sheriff court in 2015, after a long absence, and a specialised Personal Injuries Court has been established. Other recent developments include juries being given, for the first time, judicial guidelines on the computation of damages for non-patrimonial loss. This new edition discusses important recent cases such as Hamilton v Ferguson Transport (Spean Bridge) Ltd; Thomson v Dennis Thomson Builders Ltd and the appeal in Sheridan v News Group Newspapers and covers the new rules of court for the Personal Injuries Court and the Sheriff Appeal Court.
This is a comprehensive and accessible treatment of the subject with extensive citation of authority, and a handy appendix of jury awards. It will be an invaluable guide to all those who practise in the Scottish courts.
