Though the law of civil procedure has always been an integral part of the justice system, its role has evolved over time. Today, more and more, management of litigation falls to the parties, rather than the courts. As the authors state in the Preface to this volume, “The increasing volume and complexity of our civil procedure suggests that modern procedural law is itself a substantive body of law that must be navigated in order to successfully take an action through trial.” This book is the ideal companion for that journey.

Up-to-date and indispensable
Civil Procedure and Practice in Alberta, 2020 Edition is an annotated version of the Alberta Rules of Court. Written by a litigator and a judge with decades of combined experience, this handy guide provides commentary, case law and practice notes that offer invaluable insight into the increasingly complex process of conducting a civil action. In addition, it collects in one place many of the statutes often referred to in procedural matters.

Easy to access and navigate, this resource will be an indispensable resource for civil litigators and judges looking for guidance on the interpretation of the Rules. In particular, Civil Procedure and Practice in Alberta, 2020 Edition will be useful for:

  • Civil litigation and family law lawyers who will refer to it often – either in the courtroom or in the office
  • Judges who will find it to be a useful resource for their work inside and out of the courtroom
  • Law schools/law libraries who will find it to be a valuable reference for law students, faculty and other borrowers
