Civil Litigation, Revised 4th Edition prepares law clerk students for litigation as well as to assist lawyers for civil court. The Abigail Boar fact situation guides students from the initial act of hiring a lawyer to the final stage of appealing a trial judgment. This text addresses crucial topics, including the procedure before commencement of proceedings, client management, motions, Documentary Discovery and e-Discovery, trial preparation, statement of account, simplified procedure under Rule 76, and the Commercial List.
The revised 4th edition captures the 2021 amendments to the Rules of Civil Procedure (O Reg 689/20 and O Reg 248/21) and includes updated court forms, court fees, and figures throughout. Ontario Regulation 689/20 (passed January 1, 2021) and Ontario Regulation 248/21 (passed on April 1, 2021) reflect the procedural changes generated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This revised edition provides law clerk students with a clear and concise guide to the new online procedures in Ontario’s civil litigation process, including e-signature authorizations, electronic document processes, remote affidavit approval, and virtual-hearing requests.
