Such rules are the core of most methods of adjudication and they are the main theme of the present volume, which focuses specifically on the rules of evidence within the context of efficiency in civil proceedings.

  7. The Law's Delay

    Verschijnt 29 juni 2004

    Civil procedure and delay were born together. This is, of course, due to the fact that no lawsuit can be decided fairly without at least some minimum period of time in between first presenting the case to a court and obtaining a final judgment. Delay becomes a problem if it can be classified as 'undue delay'.
