Adopting the distinctive narrative approach based on the chronology of a claim, the book provides authoritative guidance on the process of civil litigation from commencement of a claim objective to enforcement of judgements. It addresses civil procedure in the county courts, the High Court, and the Supreme Court as well as more specialist matters such as insolvency proceedings, sale of goods, and human rights, providing expert analysis on a comprehensive level.
The narrative commentary is supported by the comprehensive Blackstone's Civil Practice 2012 Procedural Checklists making this a concise and authoritative research tool.
Written by a team of expert practitioners and academics it is an ideal tool for those requiring quality in-depth analysis. The text is fully referenced to Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) and Practice Directions (PD) making the book easy to use alongside other sources of these materials at your desk as well as in court.
Straightforward navigation is ensured by a detailed and user-friendly index as well as a quick-reference guide inside the front cover, providing an alternative point of access for those more familiar with the CPR.

Review from previous edition: "It's a splendid work. This book is exactly what I need. It's well structured, uniformly well written and remarkably readable yet full of detail." --Deputy District Judge Prest
"Blackstone's Civil Practice is a welcome addition to my library. It is comprehensive, sensibly organised and clearly laid out. The topic-by-topic approach is particularly helpful. I can go straight to a specific issue and get a useful commentary on the point as well as relevant contextual information. I have found information in Blackstone's Civil Practice that has not been covered in some of the other well known court books." --Lord Justice Keane
