Description

Civil Litigation by Professors Janet Walker and Lorne Sossin is a concise narrative of the key elements of the resolution of civil disputes in Canada. It covers all aspects of civil procedure and provides a useful pan-Canadian comparison of legislation and court rules from various jurisdictions. Until now there has not been an introductory work on the subject of civil litigation that places it in the larger institutional, professional, and social context of dispute resolution and which explains its main aspects in a way that is informative to members of the legal community and accessible to the larger community. Civil Ligitation fills that gap.
