This excellent work provides a comprehensive treatment of commission and diligence, both for the recovery of documents and the taking of evidence. It sets out the procedures to be followed from the preparation of the specification of documents through to the execution of the commission. Various alternatives to commission and diligence procedure are also considered in detail. While the text is principally concerned with Court of Session and sheriff court procedures, separate chapters also deal with the procedure to be followed in other courts and tribunals.
