The case law that is constantly growing as well as the norms of civil procedure are examined in this book within the framework of properly thought-out, fundamental concepts. This innovative method aims to foster a thorough and in-depth comprehension of procedure. The reader will be able to develop a fundamental understanding of the components of civil procedure through the use of Principles of Civil Procedure on every level. It will help attorneys understand complex procedural issues and give them strong arguments that they can employ in nearly every dispute. Civil procedure is more than just a set of regulations. Rules are only one aspect of the topic. Understanding the goals of the rules and how they relate to the goals of litigation is the only way to truly comprehend civil procedure.

This book is entitled “Principles of Civil Procedure” because of its focus on the building blocks of this subject. These principles have been formulated “top-down” through four interlinking levels. The overarching principle, which is the core principle for Part I, is also the source of the nine core principles of Parts II to X. All the core principles of Parts I to X flow into the chapter principles (within each of the ten parts) which in turn become the tributaries that are the subsidiary principles for each chapter. The book attempts to give a clear explanation of civil practise in the courts in addition to looking at the principles, analysing the relevant legal sources, and creating jurisprudence. This book will be very helpful to attorneys as they prepare and present their cases in interlocutory proceedings, at trial, and on appeal.
