This episode is part of the English Legal System (Module 6): An Introduction to Civil Procedure.
This episode looks at the steps parties should take before commencing civil proceedings including:
• Trying to resolve the dispute using alternative dispute resolution
• Sending a letter before action
In the episode I mention an example of a letter before action. You can find on the Citizens Advice website here.
