This discussion of legal procedure is divided into three parts: civil procedure, administrative procedure, and criminal procedure. The first part discusses the striking features of the French system, the proceedings in the Tribunal de Grande Instance, means of overturning a judgment, costs and legal aid, and the enforcement of judgments. The second part examines the access to the administrative courts, forms of redress, and proceedings in an administrative court. The last part looks at crime investigation, the decision to prosecute, the trial process, and post-trial issues.

Keywords:   civil procedure, administrative procedure, administrative courts, trial process, crime investigation, Tribunal de Grande Instance
