Abstract

The present paper discusses the administration of justice in civil matters at the superior courts in the Low Countries during the ancien régime (Great Council of Malines, High Council of Holland and Zeeland, Court of Holland). It provides an analysis of litigation at first instance and enforcement proceedings and also pays attention to fundamental principles of procedure. It appears that even though such principles were not recognized as such during the ancien régime, many of these principles were nevertheless observed in the every-day practice of the courts.

Keywords: Superior Courts, Low Countries, Administration of Justice, Civil Cases, Enforcement, Fundamental Principles of Civil Procedure
