The Civil Procedure Rules Ten Years On

Carla Crifò

Oxford University Press

In the last ten years, there have been two major developments with regards to the rules of court in civil matters. One has been the creation and consolidation of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) upon the suggestions, reports, and reforms based on Lord Woolf's findings. The other development has been the creation of a whole new legislative power with the attendant ‘policy agenda’ for the European institutions to issue Community wide rules of civil procedure, some directly and immediately applicable in all Member States. This chapter addresses questions concerned with the relationship between these two developments: whether they apply on the same level or on entirely different levels; if on the same level, whether they are complementary or antagonistic; whether the objectives driving one are compatible with the objectives driving the other; and if so, to what extent.
