Readership: Civil procedure academics worldwide, barristers and solicitors practicing in dispute resolution and litigation departments and policy makers, particularly in common law jurisdictions
Edited by Déirdre Dwyer, University of Oxford
"Scholarly, timely and not infrequently controversial, the perspectives offered in "CPR Ten Years On" are an invaluable contribution to the ongoing debate continually generated by the CPR. No civil practitioner should be without it as we all have our own views of how successful the new landscape has been..." - Phillip Taylor MBE, Richmond Green Chambers
"This is a stimulating set of studies by a distinguished group of academics, judges and practitioners. All who participated should be congratulated warmly. The Civil Procedure Rules Ten Years On will be of interest to procedural specialists in this jurisdiction and to the large body of foreign lawyers, whether common law or civilian, interested in our procedural changes and
their impact" - Neil Andrews of Clare College, Cambridge, Civil Justice Quarterly
"the first full-length book to discuss the merits and demerits of the reforms." - Journal of the Commonwealth Lawyers' Association
