Description

Offshore Civil Procedure presents an annotated commentary of civil court procedure in the British offshore jurisdictions of the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

This NEW title is the only guide to civil procedure that concentrates solely on these jurisdictions, despite their prominence as centres for offshore investment, and hence international legislation.

  • Includes the civil procedure rules for each jurisdiction with White Book style rule-by-rule commentary
  • Offers explanation and analysis of idiosyncrasies within the rules for each locality
  • Sets out local and other relevant cases and supplies commentary on them
  • Cross-refers and compares each offshore jurisdiction
  • Includes cross-references to the White Book and the English and Welsh civil procedure rules
  • Includes court forms specific to the offshore jurisdictions

Covers topics including:

  • Commencement of proceedings
  • Service
  • Case Management
  • Disclosure
  • Evidence
