Reforming Civil Procedure
by Christopher Enright
This book proposes reforms to procedures for civil litigation that aim to reduce both cost and delay, and to make justice in civil cases involving disputes of facts more accessible.
These reforms are based on a structure that is inherent in litigation and which the author captures with a model labelled 'the model of litigation'. This model rests on the relationships between the three major ingredients of civil litigation, namely the elements of the cause of action, the material facts and the evidence that may prove or disprove these material facts.
The book proposes reforms in three areas:
- pleading a case
- assembling evidence - a process that incorporates what is now done by discovery
- providing low cost legal aid
