This book is an indispensable and worthy companion. It is a single-source textbook that discusses everything the lawyer, judge, law student and lay client needs to know about the steps and procedure in civil litigation in the Circuit and High Courts. It is written in easy and clear language, follows a simple chronology and it is practice-oriented to aid the active practitioner as well as the in-house Counsel. The author provides the reader with a simplified rendition of the court rules and decisions from leading cases, as well as reference sources for further reading. She also provides several relevant precedents to serve as practical guide for drafting court documents.
The important themes of the book analyze how a case is filed in court up to the application for directions stage, where the case is ready for trial (including the use of ADR methods in resolving cases); the procedure from trial up to judgment; and the processes for executing court judgments. The different applications parties may file in a case are discussed, as well as various procedure for filing specific cases such as defamation, enforcement of human rights, maritime actions, enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards, and so forth. Appeals are discussed and so are applications for judicial review.
