‘A convenient, short guide to the basic rules of civil practice and procedure, expressed in clear and direct language. It even manages the difficult feat of making its subject matter both interesting and fun.’
The Hon Sir Peter Coulson (Member of the Civil Procedure Rules Committee)
The third edition of Be Civil! reflects two important sets of amendments: those made to the Civil Procedure Rules in April 2015 and those made to the Bar's Centrally Set Examination Syllabus and Curriculum in June 2015. With learning guides and a dedicated chapter on examination technique, this book remains an ideal text for students, especially those on the Bar Professional Training Course. Whether as introduction, overview or revision guide, it provides invaluable support to those wanting to learn about civil procedure and evidence.
