Judicial Hints on Civil Procedure
This is a welcome amended, revised and updated edition of the classic commentary and standard reference work on the Civil Procedure Act in Kenya. The volume is routinely cited by the Kenyan courts as the authoritative work, both serving the purposes of adigest, and giving a full and comprehensive statement of the law. The work summarizes the historical origins of modern civil practice and procedure in Kenya. It documents all available Kenyan case law and decisions that are of practical value in the interpretation and application of the Civil Procedure Act, and which are not obsolete by reason of legislative judicial intervention or reversal. The author is a Professor of Law and practising barrister. He is probably the most authoritative, practising commentator on Kenyan law.
