Comparative law as an engine of change for civil procedure

Chapter


Abstract


  • The title of this book suggests that it constitutes an examination of the dynamism within civil procedure across different legal systems and civil procedure devices. This may have struck civil procedure experts as strange in light of the fact that dynamism may be defined as "vigorous activity and progress". 1 Historically those are qualities that may not have been the first to spring to mind when thinking about civil procedure. Nonetheless, activity, vigour and progress form the themes throughout the contributions to this book, and arguably characterize modern civil procedure. 2
