Development of Two Litigation Manuals for Costa Rica’s New Civil Justice System

JSCA and Costa Rica’s judiciary presented the “Litigation Manual for Oral Hearings in Costa Rica’s New Civil Justice System” for attorneys and the “Manual for Oral Hearing Management in Costa Rica’s New Civil Justice System” for judges.

Once approved by the country’s Legislative Assembly, the new Civil Procedure Code entered into force. It requires judges and attorneys to work in a new way.

The launch of the two publications was sponsored by the Costa Rica Bar Association and the country’s Judicial Academy and the Judiciary’s Civil Jurisdiction Commission.

“The purpose of these litigation and hearing management manuals is to support the introduction of practices based on a concept of oral procedures as a tool for providing higher quality information related to the hearing and focusing that information on adequate dispute resolution,”

Marco Fandiño, JSCA Research and Projects Director.
