Trusted by generations of students and litigators, A Practical Approach to Civil Procedure is a classic text which guides you through the maze of procedural requirements utilized by the civil courts.

Written by an expert in the field, and co-editor of Blackstone's Civil Practice, this book is unrivalled in its detail of the various stages of a civil claim, making it essential reading for students and newly qualified litigators alike.

Taking a thoroughly practical focus throughout, the book charts the progress of a typical civil litigation claim, from funding litigation and issuing and serving proceedings, through to trial, enforcement, and appeal. Full coverage of alternative dispute resolution is also included.

Relevant sample documentation is featured throughout and introduces the reader to the forms and documents which will be encountered in practice, while key point summaries featured at the end of chapters highlight the essential points covered.

New to this Edition:-

  • Fully revised to incorporate the latest changes to the Civil Procedure Rules
  • New coverage of the introduction of the Business and Property Courts, as well as the Online Court
  • Additional discussion on the replacement of the Mercantile Court with the Circuit Commercial Court
  • Expanded coverage of recent case law to ensure a highly up-to-date resource, such as Barton v Wright Hassall LLP [2018] and Goldtrail Travel Ltd v Onur Air Tasimacilik SA [2017]
