In a very meaningful way, the health of a judicial system may be judged by the care with which its procedural rights are observed. Now, in a book that takes stock of this important element as it is currently used or abused in a number of the world's legal systems, eighteen outstanding scholars approach the subject through an analysis of the following factors: the theoretical and moral implications of procedural abuses the subjects who commit them the typologies of abusive practices the consequences of abusive practices Several authors report on practices in their own countries, revealing distinct evidence of a significant degree of lowered procedural standards in the United States, several European countries, Australia, Japan, and Latin America. General and final reports provide a comparative framework for an analytical study that will repay the study of anyone concerned with the fairness of our legal institutions.

In this book the interaction between the rights guaranteed in the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR) and private international law has been analysed by examining the case law of the European Court of Human Rights (the Court) and selected national courts. In doing so the book focuses on the impact of the ECHR on the three main issues of private international law: jurisdiction, applicable law and the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. Next to a list of cases consulted and a comprehensive bibliography, the book offers brief introductions to PIL and the ECHR for readers who are less familiar with either of the topics. This makes the book not only a valuable tool for specialists and practitioners in the fields covered, but at the same time a well-documented basis for students and starting researchers specializing in either or both directions.

The volume describes and analyzes how the costs of litigation in civil procedure are distributed in key countries around the world. It compares the various approaches, draws general conclusions from that comparison, and presents global trends as well as common problems and solutions. In particular, the book deals with three principal questions: First, who pays for civil litigation costs, i.e., to what extent do losers have to make winners whole? Second, how much money is at stake, i.e., how expensive is civil litigation in the respective jurisdictions? And third, whose money is ultimately spent, i.e., how are civil litigation costs distributed through mechanisms like legal aid, litigation insurance, collective actions, and success oriented fees? Inter alia, the study reveals a general trend towards deregulation of lawyer fees as well as a substantial correlation between the burden of litigation costs and membership of a jurisdiction in the civil and common law families. This study is the result of the XVIIIth World Congress of Comparative Law held under the auspices of the International Academy of Comparative Law.

English summary: There are times when European civil procedural law seems to actually encourage abuse of law and circumvention strategies. Matthias Klopfer examines if and how Europe's so-called prohibition of abuse of law principle can serve as a union-wide approach to regulate abuse of procedure. German description: Das Europaische Zivilverfahrensrecht erscheint gelegentlich als Materie, die Rechtsmissbrauch und Umgehungsstrategien geradezu begunstigt. Die Zuruckhaltung der Gerichte und der Rechtswissenschaft, einer zweckwidrigen oder arglistigen Inanspruchnahme von Verfahrensrecht Einhalt zu gebieten, wird mit den Eigenheiten des Rechtsgebiets selbst begrundet. In nicht naher definierten Ausnahmefallen spricht man sich dennoch fur einen Vorrang der Einzelfallgerechtigkeit aus, wobei der dogmatische Ansatzpunkt hierfur in aller Regel ungenannt bleibt. Vor diesem Hintergrund untersucht Matthias Klopfer, ob und in welchen Grenzen mittels des sogenannten unionsrechtlichen Missbrauchsverbots die missbrauchliche Inanspruchnahme von Vorschriften des Europaischen Zivilverfahrensrechts reguliert werden kann. Dabei stutzt er sich auf rechtsvergleichende Erkenntnisse im Mehrebenensystem des Unionsrechts, die Wirkungsweise und den Geltungsanspruch allgemeiner Rechtsgrundsatze und die Lehren der Interessenjurisprudenz.

English summary: This work is a profound analysis of the current problem of how conflicts of jurisdiction in public international law should be solved, avoided or used for one's own advantage. Timm Ebner discusses conflicts between the dispute settlement mechanisms of the WTO and the ICJ, ITLOS and environmental dispute settlement systems. In additional to dealing with current solutions for conflicts of jurisdiction, the author focuses on measures with which states can avoid and coordinate conflicts before they arise. The work includes proposals for preventive measures which will serve as guidelines for practitioners. German description: Eines der wichtigsten Elemente des derzeitigen Konstitutionalisierungsprozesses im Volkerrecht ist die gestarkte Rolle bestehender und neu geschaffener internationaler Streitbeilegungssysteme. Mit bereits uber 300 Streitfallen nimmt das Streitbeilegungsverfahren der WTO dabei neben IGH, ISGH und den sich entwickelnden umweltrechtlichen Schiedsgerichten eine herausragende Rolle ein. Welthandelsrechtliche Streitigkeiten beruhren oft weitere Bereiche des Volkerrechts, beispielsweise Seerecht und Umweltrecht, fur die andere internationale Gerichte zustandig sind. Timm Ebner erortert die hieraus folgenden Jurisdiktionskonflikte, die er u.a. am Beispiel moglicher Konflikte der WTO zum IGH und ISGH darstellt.Der Autor behandelt die Frage, wie sich Staaten schon vor einem Streitfall durch Vereinbarungen, Vorbehalte und andere praventive Massnahmen gegen Nachteile von Jurisdiktionskonflikten wappnen und ihre Vorteile optimal nutzen konnen. Anhand konkreter Beispiele zeigt er mogliche praventive Massnahmen auf.Diese Dissertation wurde mit dem Kulturpreis der E.On Bayern AG ausgezeichnet.

This is detailed and consistent account of the whole CPR system, dealing with how the overriding objective and other principles underlying civil procedure are applied and how judicial discretion and case management powers are exercised. Complementing the Green Book and other leading civil procedure titles, it analyses reported and unreported case law drawing out the principles to the applied, advising on areas where clear precedent has not yet been established or where the authority is open to question. It applies principles and human rights considerations to guide practitioners on how judges are, or should be exercising their powers and provides arguments to use before them. Endorsed by Lord Woolf, this text is designed for efficient task-oriented access to key information.

The only book of its kind available in English, Civil Procedure in Japan is the most reliable and comprehensive reference on the broad subject of the Japanese civil justice system. Civil Procedure in Japan discusses the problems encountered in litigating a civil controversy in the chronological order in which they are most likely to arise. Since civil procedure, as all law, is a product of historical developments and since it cannot be understood without reference to the political structure within it is to operate, Chapter 1 presents the historical background to date of the development of court procedure. The chapter looks at Japan's political organization (Executive, Legislative, etc), the court structure, and the sources of law. Chapter 2 is devoted to a look at the world of Japanese Legal Profession including legal education and non-Japanese lawyers in Japan, while Chapter 3 is an overview of the Judiciary as a whole. Chapter 4 sets forth the basic concepts involved in the judiciary authority and its interface with other governmental authorities. Subsequent chapters deal with practical issues of civil procedure, starting with Chapter 5 through Chapter 8, the trial is traced from beginning (parties to action and pre-commencement preparation including provisional remedies) through appellate procedures. Chapters 8 and 9 deal with various judicial proceedings outside of typical civil actions. Chapter 11 specifically explains various insolvency proceedings from straight bankruptcy to corporate reorganization. Chapter 12 is devoted to the arbitration law of 2002. Chapter 13 is about various terms of the court costs. Enforcement of civil judgments is treated in detail in Chapter 14. Finally, Chapter 15 is reserved for international cooperation in litigation and sets forth Japan's bilateral arrangements for international co-operation. Furthermore, appendices include an English translation of the Code and Rules of Civil Procedure of 1996 and other important statutes, English translations of sample judgments, glossaries, bibliography, ect.
