Systems of civil justice in England, Wales and Scotland have been subjected to close scrutiny in recent years. Reforms have been introduced aimed at lowering costs and reducing delays in the dispensation of justice. But reform is not just a matter for lawyers.

Economists have a distinctive contribution to make because of their concerns both for efficiency in the short run and for the factors which stimulate innovation over the long term. This book utilizes economic principles to great effect in exploring the efficiency of the civil justice system and ways in which a more innovative regime might be introduced.
