Civil Appeals is an authoritative and detailed guide to the practice and procedure for bringing civil appeals at all levels of the appellate courts, and examines the principles applied by appellate courts when considering appeals. It also addresses arbitration appeals, examining appeals on points of law, serious irregularity and challenges to substantive jurisdiction.

This second edition deals with the new Practice Directions to CPR Part 52 (Appeals), which have introduced a large number of procedural changes, in particular relating to applications for permission to appeal. It also deals with recent changes to the rules in CPR Part 52. The book has also been updated to reflect changes in the rules applying to appeals against arbitral awards, and refers to important new decisions on appellate procedure and principles which all civil practitioners need to be aware of.

In his Foreword, Lord Dyson MR describes the book as “an essential work for both lawyers and judges” and “the leading work in the field”.
