The Civil Litigation Handbook introduces students to the processes and procedures involved in making and defending civil litigation claims. This text is ideal for students taking the Legal Practice Course 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. The Civil Litigation Handbook offers practical guidance on advising clients whilst ensuring that the principles of the Solicitors Code of Conduct 2007 are maintained. Students on ILEX 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 start of appropriate chapters make clear the way in which the litigation procedure works 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 costs, 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.
