Zuckerman on Civil Procedure: Principles of Practice (4th edition) Out Today
28th January 2021
Published by Sweet & Maxwell, Juliet Wells is the General Editor of the 4th edition.
First published in 2003 in the wake of the Woolf Reforms, Zuckerman on Civil Procedure has for many years been the leading academic and practitioners’ text on civil procedure. It presents a clear and thematic analysis of litigation under the Civil Procedure Rules, explaining how the court interprets and applies the Rules, how judges exercise their extensive case management powers, and how this impacts the conduct of litigation. Throughout, the emphasis is on bringing out the principles that govern the exercise of judicial discretion in order to help judges and practitioners to understand the relationship between individual Rules and general principles, and to deal with difficult problems that arise in the course of litigation. Its analysis is authoritative – the previous editions have been regularly cited by the High Court, the Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court and Privy Council, and by the highest courts in other common law jurisdictions.
