Ontario Superior Court Practice provides annotated Ontario rules of civil procedure highlighting the crucial information and principles you need to argue on the fly. The clear, well-organized statements of the current civil law and practice are often cited in the lower courts and by the Court of Appeal. This is a student edition.

10 Reasons Why OSCP is The "On-the-Go" Rules book for All Civil Litigators:

1. Annotations provide a summary of the law with cases footnoted – saves you time to "navigate the forest" to get to the research point
2. More in-depth and extensive annotations than other Rules books – gives you the answer that is not found elsewhere
3. Example situations – helps you apply points of law to applicable situations
4. Annotations edited by the judiciary to ensure currency – prepares you to meet bench expectations
5. Accessible tables with procedural & substantive limitation periods, causes of action, defences and remedies, and civil appeal routes – provides you with the roadmap for your case
6. Quick Guide to Preparation and Filing of Court Materials – relieves you of last-minute panic to prepare court filings
7. Other Sources of topical discussion – directs you to quality publications for further research
8. E-discovery Checklist – reminds you of the do’s and don’ts of e-discovery
9. E-Book version that offers portability and free off-line access to full text of cases – allows you to leave your desk copies in your office
10. “Two-In-One” (Ontario Rules of Civil Procedure + fully annotated Small Claims Court Rules) – saves you the hassle to “toggle” between two Rules books
