Whether you’re practising in the High Court or county courts, you need the Green Book. It is the essential guide to bringing, defending and appealing civil proceedings and has indispensable coverage of the CPR. It provides focused, authoritative and comprehensive coverage of the CPR from experts including Lord Justices of Appeal, district judges and leading practitioners and is fully cross–referenced to Butterworths Civil Court Precedents. In this set, you will find that:

In Volume 2 there are the Supreme Court Rules and PDs and the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council Rules and PDs. A separate forms supplement sets out all available forms listed in CPR PD 4 together with additional forms. Also included is a supplement containing the procedural tables for easy desk top reference. These tables assist in complicated or lengthy procedures which have to be completed quickly, minimising the risk of error.

A CD–ROM provides the full text and the complete set of fillable and downloadable forms.

Essential commentary and explanatory notes are included throughout, written by an expert editorial board, including Lord Justices of Appeal, QBD and Chancery Masters, district judges and leading practitioners.

The Green Book is known for its clear, comprehensive and pertinent explanation of the Rules, the cases and their application. This detailed coverage is unrivalled by other texts on civil procedure and places the Green Book firmly at the top of the litigation tree. All in 2 main volumes – nothing archived.
