‘A Practical Guide to the Small Claims Track’ by Dominic Bright
Publication due: November 2019
This is a clear, comprehensive, but concise guide for junior barristers and solicitors to succeeding on the small claims track. Of the claims that went to trial between October and December 2018, more than two-thirds were allocated to this track: effectively representing clients in a small claim is vital. This practical guide includes how to make an oral application to successfully strike out, tactical use of the key authorities, and when to ask for costs on the basis of unreasonable behaviour.
