Civil Procedure


the system of a trial and decision by the court of civil cases, as established by the law of civil procedure, and the system of carrying out decisions of the court and certain other judicial bodies. Civil procedure includes the legally regulated activity of the court in the administration of justice, the activity of the bailiff and all participants in the judicial proceedings, and the legal relationships arising in the course of the proceedings.

Civil procedure consists of various phases, in each of which the court performs certain tasks: bringing an action, preparation of a case for trial, trial, appeal proceedings, proceedings of a supervisory agency, review of a decision because of new facts, and execution of a decision.
