Civil Litigation introduces students to the processes and procedures involved in making and defending civil litigation claims. The text is ideal for students taking the Legal Practice Course or relevant LLB or LLM modules and features case studies on both a personal injury matter and a commercial matter, making it suitable for students with either a high street or a commercial focus.

New to this Edition:-

  • New discussion on the likely introduction of an Intermediate Track and increases in Small Claims Track limits
  • Details of the new disclosure pilot scheme which indicates likely fundamental changes to the process of disclosure in the near future
