The text focuses on key practice areas, with chapters on the practice and procedure of each of the courts; damages; the limitation of actions; concurrent wrongdoers; appeals; civil evidence; discovery; injunctions; judicial review; personal injury litigation; summary procedure and enforcement of judgments; litigation costs and client care and file management.
