This course examines the procedures, processes and rules that shape how civil disputes are managed and resolved. The primary focus is the processes used in New South Whales courts, and the operation of the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules. Examples from other jurisdictions, such as the Federal Court of Australia, will also be discussed.
The course also encourages students reflections upon the policy dimensions of civil litigation, and the importance of contextualising litigation in the broader context of dispute resolution. This includes the essential role of dispute resolution processes to promote settlement without court proceedings.
