This book explains how the Civil Procedure Rules work in practice. The book covers the entire spectrum of civil litigation in a general and basic way. It provides a step-by-step guide through all stages of a civil action, from funding through to trial, costs, enforcement and appeals.

It is applicable to all civil litigation fee earners, barristers practising in civil litigation, trainee solicitors and barristers, and LPC (Legal Practice Course) and BPTC (Bar Professional Training Course) students and as such the market consists of students (though less so in recent years given an increase in student textbooks in this area), and new practitioners. It functions well as a transitional text offering more practical advice than a student textbook but still at a relatively basic level, making it useful for new practitioners, but perhaps less so for those more experienced who would likely go straight to the White Book for their information. Although it does not follow its exact structure, this book mirrors the White Book, and is cross-referenced to it. That is, rather than covering everything the White Book does, it picks out the parts of the Civil Procedure that the authors feel are most in need of additional guidance. It is therefore a complementary text to the White Book and serves as a feeder to it. The book is also an excellent refresher text.

By publishing every two years the authors are able to analyse and comment upon the changes as they evolve and bed down. This keeps the text fresh and topical, as it needs to be because the CPR is amended up to four times a year (and the White Book is supplemented in tandem).
