Product description



Civil Practice during the Pandemic – The Quick Procedural Guide for Every Alberta Civil Litigator and Legal Assistant
For any civil litigator and legal assistant, nothing is more important than a thorough understanding of the substantive and procedural aspects of the litigation process. As civil procedure in Alberta is governed by the Alberta Rules of Court, a quick procedural guide is what you need to ensure compliance with the Rules.

This user-friendly annual handbook provides a one-stop source of information for every civil litigator, legal assistant, articling student and paralegal in Alberta.

Written by two leading civil litigators, the first part of the book consists of 11 chapters guiding you sequentially through a civil proceeding – from the retainer to setting aside a noting in default to perfecting appeals. The second part of the book is comprised of 15 appendices that bring together a wide range of checklists and practical information litigators need on a daily basis.
