The Woolf Reforms are used to explain the rationale of the new system.; The book provides not only a clear guide to the meaning of the new rules but also a vital insight into the new culture, typified by case management, proportionality and the overriding objective, which has fundamentally reformed the principles on which our civil procedure system is based. A critique is given of the merits of the reforms and the likelihood that they will achieve their objectives.
