Litigation in the United Kingdom is governed by a complex system of laws and regulations that aim to ensure fairness and justice in resolving disputes. The legal framework includes various Acts of Parliament, rules of civil procedure, case law, and regulations that apply to different types of litigation such as commercial disputes, personal injury claims, employment law issues, and more.

The Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) are particularly central to the conduct of civil litigation in England and Wales. They provide a comprehensive code of practice for the courts and those involved in civil litigation. In Scotland, the Court of Session Rules and the Sheriff Court Rules apply, whereas in Northern Ireland, the Rules of the Court of Judicature and the County Court Rules are used.

Key principles that underpin litigation in the UK include:

  1. Access to Justice: Ensuring that individuals have the access they need to the legal system to resolve their disputes.
  2. Fairness: All parties should be treated fairly and impartially by the legal system.
  3. Equality before the law: Every party, regardless of status, should be subject to the same legal rules and procedures.
  4. Right to a fair trial: Enshrined in Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which is incorporated into UK law by the Human Rights Act 1998.
  5. Proportionality: The costs and time involved in litigation should be proportionate to the complexity and importance of the issues.
