This book presents an overview of how European jurisdictions tackle the key problem of civil procedural law: the standard of proof. In order to arrive at an adequate solution, the volume gathers together the expert assessments of fourteen law professors and their different perspectives from across the continent.
The main purpose of this book is to learn about different approaches to a key problem of procedural law, namely the standard of proof. The second is to assess the various stances adopted by diverse jurisdictions and find an adequate standard. Fourteen outstanding law professors describe and analyse how their national legal systems handle and deal with the problem.
