Seventh Edition

Susan Cunningham-Hill and Karen Elder

  • An accessible and engaging writing style lends an informal tone to what is often considered by students to be a procedural subject area.
  • Two case studies, one on a personal injury matter and one on a debt/breach of contract matter, provide realistic examples which help students put their learning into context and prepare them for life in practice.
  • Diagrams in the form of a timeline feature at the start of relevant chapters and offer a visual representation of litigation procedure, enabling students to gain an overview of the connections between the various stages of the civil litigation process.
  • Text boxes emphasize important practical considerations such as costs, best practice and professional conduct, as well as the Civil Procedure Rules.
  • Self-test questions and key point summaries at the end of chapters help students assess their own level of knowledge and understanding.
  • Comprehensive coverage of alternative dispute resolution ensures that students are prepared to take on the modern ethos of litigation in practice.
  • An extensive Online Resource Centre includes video footage relating to case studies within the book, an interactive litigation timeline, updates, podcasts, weblinks, and a test bank of over 50 questions to test students' understanding of the subject.
