Any lawyer practicing in the civil courts in England and Wales needs a thorough grasp of practice and procedure, and the rules of practice as applied by the courts. Taking a pragmatic rather than an academic approach to the topic, A Practical Approach to Civil Procedure provides a comprehensive commentary on all the major areas of civil litigation.

Designed to cover points that are likely to arise in day-to-day practice, the text explains the various procedures that must be followed as a claim progresses from its early stages through its interim stages, and on to trial, enforcement, and possible appeal.

This tenth edition has been revised in the light of recent developments in the law and practice, and also to take into account feedback from readers.

Online Resource Center
An updated test bank accompanies the tenth edition, offering 60 multiple choice questions and answers to help lecturers assess their students' progress.
