'It is extraordinary how much information has been crammed into such a slim volume. I have commented before that it is a very well judged mixture of substantive law and procedure. I particularly commend the section on jurisdiction written in the light of the expiration of the transitional period on 31 December 2020 and the final departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union. This is one of the best short synopses of the jurisdictional rules that you are likely to encounter[...]I remain convinced that this work is an essential component in every practitioner’s library.'

The Hon Mr Justice Mostyn
