Review quote

This text provides the best pragmatic and detailed overview of the civil process on the market. Life would have been much easier if this work existed when I became a litigator. Clearly written and thorough, it is without equal. * Dominic Regan, Solicitor, CPD Lecturer, legal writer and broadcaster * Review from previous edition An excellent and comprehensive text which serves extremely well as an explanatory and practical aid to understanding and using the Civil Procedure Rules. Most textbooks in this area are not anywhere near as detailed, or as clear and effective. * Dragan Plavsic, Senior Lecturer, University of Hertfordshire *
