This book examines a burgeoning policy area of the EU - the regulation of cross border civil and commercial litigation. The book analyses the EU's specific legislative measures regulating civil procedure and assesses their impact on litigation, particularly due process rights. The policy is then placed in the broader contexts of European integration and the international codification of civil procedure.
