About the book

Description

The Administration of Civil Justice in England and Wales provides information of how both criminal and civil law is administered. This book discusses the jurisdiction and composition of the country courts, civil work of the magistrates' courts, as well as of the High Court of Justice. Organized into 12 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the historical origins from which the modern courts have emerged. This text then explains the various strata of courts, namely country courts, magistrates' courts, the Court of Justice including its various divisions, and the appeal facilities that are available to litigants. Other chapters consider the different administrative tribunals and inquiries. The final chapter deals with the costs and the availability of legal aid and advice. This book is a valuable resource for readers who are interested in the administration of civil and criminal justice. Law students and newly qualified practitioners will also find this book useful.
