Providing detailed commentary of unrivalled quality on the process of civil litigation, this is the only major civil work to adopt a narrative approach based on the chronology of a claim. Written by a team of expert practitioners and academics, it provides authoritative analysis on the process of civil litigation from commencement of a claim to enforcement of judgments, addressing civil procedure in the county courts, the High Court, the Court of Appeal, and the Supreme Court. The book also considers more specialist matters such as insolvency proceedings, sale of goods, and human rights, providing expert analysis on a comprehensive level. Commentary is combined with the text of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), Practice Directions (PD), and Pre-Action Protocols and Procedural Checklists, all fully cross-referenced to the text to ensure ease of use for the busy practitioner. As well as a detailed and user-friendly index the quick-reference guide inside the front cover provides an alternative point of access for those more familiar with the CPR. Also available, Blackstone's Civil Practice: The Commentary 2013 is a concise new book providing the unique commentary independently from the CPR, PD and other appendix materials. Electronic versions of the Procedural Checklists in Blackstone's Civil Practice 2013 are available from IRIS Laserform.
