(Jackson and Pastellas)


Elegals Litigator's Toolkit (Jackson and Pastellas) is the most comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules 1999 (Qld). It includes the complete Uniform Civil Procedure Rules, extensive commentary and analysis incorporating new cases weekly, and access to Practice Directions, and forms.

Elegals Litigator’s Toolkit (Jackson and Pastellas) makes finding the right rule (and knowing what to do with it when you get there) simple. An Overview & Key Features, and a Beginner's Guide is provided for each chapter. An expert commentary is provided for each rule within each chapter. There is also a comparative table for each rule (comparing the Uniform Rule with the previous rules in the Magistrates, District and Supreme Courts) and an explanation of the changes effected by the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules.

We have also included the easiest way to access forms prescribed by the Rules, practice directions, costs and fees, relevant legislation and relevant caselaw; wherever possible, they are linked. In practical terms, this means that users can access all of that material at the click of a button, without leaving their desktop.

Our unique "Search Toolkit" function finds the information you want and takes you to the source at the click of a button.

The principal contributors to the Elegals Litigator’s Toolkit (Jackson and Pastellas) are Sheryl Jackson (former Associate Professor, Faculty of Law, QUT), and Julie Pastellas (senior lecturer, Faculty of Law, QUT). Numerous additional contributions have been made by specialist academics and private practitioners.
