Civil Costs: Law and Practice is now well established as an authoritative and comprehensive work covering all aspects of civil costs, coupled with practical applications, detailed references and precedents.

In addition the work is supported by the text of relevant statutes, rules and cases, as well as references to many authorities difficult to find elsewhere. The result is a valuable reference work which provides a one-stop-shop for the law governing civil costs.

  • a new section on human rights and the law of costs
