What are the Civil Procedure Rules?

The Civil Procedure Rules (or “CPR Rules”) govern the procedure to be followed in most civil claims. The rules are designed to allow the parties to comply with the overriding objective of enabling the court to deal with cases justly and at proportionate cost.

The CPR includes a number of “pre-action protocols” which include an outline of the steps that parties should take in particular types of dispute to seek and provide information to each other, prior to the commencement of a legal claim.

The consequences for failing to comply with the CPR can be severe, and can ultimately result in a claim or defence to be struck out.
