General Litigation Procedure Checklist (Canada) Mobile App
This checklist is designed to be used with the "Client Identification and Verification Procedure" checklist.
How does it work?
It focuses primarily on actions in the British Columbia Supreme Court. Counsel for the plaintiff or for the defendant may use this checklist, as many of the procedures are the same for each. Where a procedure applies specifically to the plaintiff or defendant, it is noted in the checklist. If a counterclaim or third-party proceeding is involved, refer to the procedures for the plaintiff or defendant, as appropriate. Keep in mind your client’s best interests in the litigation. This checklist is intended to be comprehensive, but your client’s interests may not be best served by adherence to all aspects of the checklist or full-scale litigation (that is, it may be preferable to recommend a negotiated resolution of the dispute). The nature and scope of the litigation in each case is a matter for your own professional judgment.
