The Foundation of the IADC has published on its website an extensive guide that offers an overview of civil justice systems relevant to defendants and potential defendants around the world. The “Survey of International Litigation Procedures: A Reference Guide” is a question and answer survey by country that includes for each country general information about local methods of adjudication, alternative dispute resolution, discovery, trial procedure, experts, privilege, limitations, costs rules, jurisdiction, and other topics of interest to potential litigants. There are currently surveys for more than 45 countries online.
Thank you to Gord McKee of Blake, Cassels & Graydon, LLP in Toronto, Ontario, Canada for his work leading and editing the project. We also thank all of the contributors who completed the surveys.
