This very useful book provides that essential knowledge for Denmark. In a small compass and without overdue complexity, it gives any legal practitioner the knowledge to proceed confidently and avoid pitfalls as he or she deals with such matters as business disputes, property rights, family and estate affairs, real estate, bankruptcy, or the testing of certain administrative decisions in Denmark.
The author describes and analyzes the rules applicable to civil procedure under the Administration of Justice Act ( Retsplejeloven, or Rpl ), with detailed attention where appropriate to the major reform of Danish procedural law now under way. The important human rights dimension of Danish civil procedure is also emphasized, as Rpl continues to be amended to bring it into line with the European Convention on Human Rights.
A general introduction describes the background, sources, and fundamental guarantees of Danish civil procedure law. Further chapters cover the courts, the organization of legal practice, bailiffs and debt collection, jurisdiction and venue, application of international treaties, admissible actors, ordinary and provisional proceedings, appeals, legal aid and legal costs, burden of proof, administration of evidence, enforcement of judgments, arbitration, and other key elements of the subject.
