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. Following the chronological progression of a civil litigation claim, the book offers practical guidance on advising clients whilst ensuring that the latest principles of the SRA Handbook and Code of Conduct are maintained. Students on CILEx courses, new trainees in practice, and paralegals will find this practical guidance of use in both their study and their work. Innovative diagrams at the beginning of chapters clearly illustrate the litigation procedure and help students understand the nature of the process as a whole. Examples provide students with a realistic context for their learning, while issues of cost, best practice, and professional conduct are clearly highlighted. Alternative dispute resolution is given appropriate practical emphasis, and references to the Civil Procedure Rules throughout make sure that students are ready for life in practice.

Globalization of legal traffic and the inherent necessity of having to litigate in foreign courts or to enforce judgments in other countries considerably complicate civil proceedings due to great differences in civil procedure. This may consequently jeopardize access to justice. This triggers the debate on the need for harmonization of civil procedure. In recent years, this debate has gained in importance because of new legislative and practical developments both at the European and the global level. This book discusses the globalization and harmonization of civil procedure from the angles of legal history, law and economics and (European) policy. Attention is paid to the interaction with private law and private international law, and European and global projects that aim at the harmonization of civil procedure or providing guidelines for fair and efficient adjudication. It further includes contributions that focus on globalization and harmonization of civil procedure from the viewpoint of eight different jurisdictions. This book is an unique combination of theory and practice and valuable for academic researchers in the area of civil procedure, private international law, international law as well as policy makers (national and EU), lawyers, judges and bailiffs.

The resolution of civil liability claims is an expensive and uncertain process. Frequent parties to civil litigation face growing costs, but they might reduce the expense and uncertainty of litigation through new methods for using computers. Organizations that have experience in handling a large volume of civil litigation can use these methods to manage groups of cases and to organize single, complex cases. Four new methods for using computers--open claim analysis, closed claim analysis, decision analysis, and rule-based modeling--may reduce the direct costs of litigation and the indirect costs of uncertainty in evaluating civil claims. All four methods have been used to analyze and support decisions about litigation, but most have not been widely applied. This report describes the development, uses, and limitations of each method, so that insurance company claim departments, law firms, corporations, and other frequent parties to litigation can consider whether those methods might be of help.

In January 2009 the then Master of the Rolls, Sir Anthony Clarke, appointed Lord Justice Jackson to lead a fundamental review of the rules and principles governing the costs of civil litigation and to make recommendations in order to promote access to justice at proportionate cost. Sir Rupert's preliminary report, published in May 2009, is the product of fact-finding, research and investigations over a four-month period and serves to establish: how present costs rules operate and how they impact on the behaviour of both parties and lawyers; the effect case management procedures have on costs and whether changes in process could bring about more proportionate costs; a comparison for the costs regime for England and Wales with those operating in other jurisdictions. This report was published online in May 2009, beginning a period of consultation. The final report (ISBN 9780117064041) is released alongside this printed version of the preliminary report and contains extensive cross-references to it.
