Description: A project to thoroughly review and revise rules with a view to developing efficient, effective and clear rules. Revision History: This summary was last revised: August 01, 2012 The aim of this cooperation is to develop efficient, effective and clear rules. This should help to reduce delays, reduce costs and lead to better results, thus improving access to justice. Updated and revised, the Nova Scotia Rules of Civil Procedure, 2nd Edition include: The Nova Scotia judiciary has been a client of Lexum since 2003. It operates courthouses in 12 major municipalities across the province for all provincial courts. He was one of the first to adopt Decisia for the publication of the province`s judicial decisions. Its website provides access to court records, court decisions, as well as official information for member counsel and the media. Purpose: While provincial rules have served well, concerns about delays, costs and excessive complexity of court cases suggest that the rules need to be thoroughly reviewed and rewritten as necessary. The Nova Scotia Supreme Court has conducted a comprehensive review and revision of the rules. At the invitation of the Supreme Court, the Law Reform Commission, the Nova Scotia Barristers` Society and the Nova Scotia Department of Justice are also participating in the Rules Review Project.
These updates are part of the Courts Website Update Project to improve the content, presentation, structure and operation of the Nova Scotia Courts website. The new website is expected to launch in fall 2021. The Nova Scotia judiciary recently integrated Qweri into the Nova Scotia Courts website to improve interaction with the Nova Scotia Code of Civil Procedure and other related documents such as the Court of Appeal Practice Guidelines, Provincial Court Rules and Practice Guidelines, and Supreme Court Practice Notes. The Code of Civil Procedure is available in both official languages and now benefits from Qweri`s dynamic table of contents and documentary research. PDF and ePub versions are also available for download, as is a printable version that can be customized by selecting items from the table of contents. Development: The first phase of the Nova Scotia Rules Review Project, the review and discussion of policy issues, was completed in 2004-2005. It included the preparation of a thematic memorandum and reports from several working groups that made specific recommendations on various topics. On the basis of these recommendations, a new set of rules was developed. The new rules were provisionally approved by the Nova Scotia judiciary and released in February 2008.
