Civil Litigation is a thorough, up to date and practical introduction to the Civil Procedure Rules and the principles and tactics used in pursuing a civil case. The civil process has been divided into five stages, starting with pre-action considerations, moving on to examine the issue and service of proceedings, before considering interim matters, trial and enforcement. The aim of the book is to equip readers with the knowledge necessary to enable them successfully to navigate their way through these stages. The text has a user-friendly structure and includes checklists and specimen documents which build up into a case study forming a useful overview of the civil litigation process. The appendices incorporate helpful templates, flow diagrams, case study documents and copies of the more common court forms used in civil litigation.
In this edition we have included updates on the courts’ approach to granting relief from sanctions ( Denton v TH White Ltd  EWCA Civ 906) and drafting skeleton arguments ( Inplayer Ltd & Anor v Thorogood  EWCA 1511); issues of jurisdiction under the recast Brussels Regulation (1215/2012); developments in alternative dispute resolution and costs; the revised Part 36 and PD 36A; the 2014 Guidance for the Instruction of Experts in Civil Claims and the new Practice Direction on Pre-Action Conduct.
