Civil Procedure

New or Used: $135.00
Civil Procedure examines the fundamental principles and concepts of this area of law. This book aims to provide an accessible yet comprehensive text for Australian students. Civil Procedure analyses many relevant cases and legislation and systematically discusses and clarifies the complexities within this discipline. It also highlights the Court hierarchy and legislative frameworks for all Australian States and Territories. Part A introduces civil procedure and covers the chronological progress of civil litigation from precursors to litigation right through to judgment and appeals. It includes explanations of case management, commencing proceedings, pleading, documentary processes, privilege, preparation of witness evidence and trial itself. Part B covers special topics in civil procedure and concepts which arise throughout litigation. It explains interactions with the court, summary disposition, legal costs, settlement, alternative dispute resolution and specialist courts and tribunals. An excellent resource for law students, Civil Procedure provides visual summaries in the form of flow charts, and each chapter includes key concepts and end-of-chapter discussion questions, further reading and useful websites and links. It also introduces students to key examinable areas, legal style essays, problems and assessment.
