In this course we will discuss approaches taken in different jurisdictions towards key problems of civil litigation. In particular, we will look at the following topics:
- Court organisation
- Costs and funding of civil litigation
- Amicable settlement within and outside ordinary proceedings
- Collective redress
- Relationship between the judge and the parties
- Arbitration and the courts
As this is a workshop-style course, attendance in class and participation in the discussions is obligatory and will count towards your grade. In addition, students are expected to give a presentation on one of the topics of the course. Furthermore, there will be an oral exam.
