Litigation as ‘Core Business’: Analysing the Access to Justice and Regulatory Dimensions of Commercially Funded Class Actions in Australia
Commercial Law, Civil Procedure, collective litigation procedures, hot controversy and normative debate
In recent years collective litigation procedures have spread across the globe, accompanied by hot controversy and normative debate. Yet virtually nothing is known about how these procedures operate in practice. Based on extensive documentary and interview research, this volume presents the results of the first comparative investigation of class actions and group litigation ‘in action’, in the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
