Professor Andrew McGee's Limitation Periods, now in its ninth edition, is a well-known and authoritative text. Professor McGee provides thorough instruction in all legal areas, from initial issues to litigation, to help practitioners navigate the complexity of the law of limitations. The goal of the book is to encourage prompt action and eliminate any delays that can result in failure. European and international limitation issues are covered throughout the book.
- gives instructions on time restrictions in all areas of law, from initial issues to legal actions.
- This time-tested title cuts through the complexity to focus on what you need to know, saving you research and preparation time. This field of law is notoriously complex and perplexing, with over 150 statutory time limits appropriate to specific causes of action.
- It helps the practitioner manage casework so that actions are started within the specified time frame by stating when time starts to run out, how long the limitation period is, and the repercussions of expiry in different circumstances.
- The plaintiff's right is not lost even when the traditional remedy is no longer available due to the passing of the limitation period. The book lists the options that remain open after expiration as well as the numerous possible exceptions to the regulations.
- The chapters are organized such that they deal with various legal proceedings individually. For instance, the chapter on Disability describes the conditions covered and the safeguards offered for the running (and ending) of restriction periods for such individuals.
- With separate chapters on, for instance, Pleading Questions (considering the issues emerging from the pleading of a limitation point: how and when to plead, burden of proof, foregoing the statute, estoppel, etc.) and Procedural Delays, all procedural topics are handled.
- analyzes recent case law decisions and explains the implications for actions and judgments to come. Examples include the Supreme Court decision in Test Claimants in the Franked Investment Income Group Litigation v. Revenue and Customs Commissioners and the Court of Appeal decision in Matthew v. Sedman.
- Describes European, including post-Brexit changes, and global limitation period difficulties.
