This chapter follows the structure of the previous chapter. It gives a brief introduction to the Woolf Reform and the Civil Procedure Rules, which regulate the conduct of civil court proceedings and are based to a large extent on Lord Woolf’s recommendations. The chapter then briefly sets out the course of a lawsuit and presents the taking of evidence in civil litigation in the pre-action, the pre-trial, and the trial phase. Lastly and most importantly, the chapter explores legal professional privilege, which has two sub-heads under English law: legal advice privilege and litigation privilege.
