Civil Procedure: Denmark

Erik Werlauff, Lars Lindenkrone Pedersen

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The book allows not only for traditional dispute settlement, but also includes special proceedings in such areas of legal practice as property rights, family and estate affairs, real estate, bankruptcy, and the testing of administrative decisions. This very useful book gives any legal practitioner the knowledge to proceed confidently and avoid pitfalls in any case that comes under Danish civil procedure, including arbitration in Denmark. The authors expertly describe and analyse the rules applicable to civil procedure, focusing on the recent major reforms in Danish procedural law, also with attention to the human rights dimension. Chapters cover fundamental guarantees, the courts, organisation of legal practice, jurisdiction and venue, application of international treaties, admissible actors, appeals, incidents, legal aid and legal costs, burden of proof, administration of evidence, enforcement of judgments, and other key elements of the subject. A special chapter covers arbitration in Denmark, including international matters, after a recent reform of the Danish arbitration act. Also, the international role of the Maritime and Commercial High Court in Copenhagen is covered. With its breadth of practical application, and its avoidance of overdue complexity, however with numerous operative references to case law, this convenient volume will be welcomed by students and practitioners as an incomparable first-stop resource in its field.
