Elements of procedural law

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterProfessional

Abstract

Substantive law will have to be enforced. Apart from private enforcement, this is done through the courts. That asks for procedural rules, which will have to ensure that justice will be done. This objective is reached by respecting the right to a fair trial for all the parties involved. This concept of a fair trial turns out to have many ramifications, which are explored in this chapter. A distinction will be made between insitutional and procedural principles. The chapter will conclude with the description of some more general aspects of court procedures, like legal representation and evidence.
