Abstract

Whilst the article will address the problems and reforms of civil procedure and the law relating thereto, its principle consideration focuses on issues surrounding reform problems among present and future ‘civil justice systems’ in Eastern and Western Europe as a whole. This consideration will not simply concentrate on mere single ‘tendencies,’ trends or shifts of civil procedural developments, but on the reform processes of justice systems. These processes have transpired to be strong, actual, and occasionally observable globally. They are in part similar and in part different, and are really fundamental movements towards reform of civil justice systems in Eastern and Western European nations. Although this report concentrates on the present situation in Europe, similar and even the same situations can also be found in other parts of the world.
