Abstract

During the last decade or so, the question whether or not European legal systems are converging has been debated fiercely. The present article seeks to question the anti-convergence argument from the perspective of legal history. It gives a brief overview of the shared legal past of most modern systems of civil procedure in Europe and tries to identify areas of procedural law which have been susceptible to convergence. The main focus of attention will be on the influence of continental civil procedure on its English counterpart.
