Civil Procedure in Australia provides a detailed analysis of the rules of civil procedure in the State Supreme Courts and in the Federal Court Civil Procedure in Australia is based on the successful work formerly published as Litigation I — Civil Procedure.
This book examines the principal rules governing the usual manner in which superior court cases are litigated. It covers the rules which apply to the running of civil cases, ranging from those which must be considered prior to the commencement of litigation to the rules pertaining to appeals and enforcement. Primary and secondary materials from all Australian jurisdictions are included.
The topics covered in the book encompass the areas of knowledge required for admission to legal practice in Australia. Principles of procedure which are essential to an understanding of the way in which civil proceedings are conducted are examined in the book, which in addition equips the reader to navigate the broader requirements of civil procedure.
In Australia and comparable jurisdictions, civil procedure has been subject to significant statutory reforms, including greater judicial control of civil proceedings and the increased requirements placed on the courts to follow mechanisms for resolving disputes other than by litigation. This book examines these reforms and provides an up to date account of the rules which govern civil litigation in Australia.
