Justice and Efficiency in Mega-Litigation explores the way in which Australian judges reconcile the objectives of justice and efficiency - for the parties to the case and for the community - in mega-litigation. This issue is situated within broader theoretical debates about the role of courts and the purpose of civil procedure. It is also considered as part of the practical and legal developments in civil procedure over the last century; most significantly, the rise of case management as a means of improving efficiency and increasing access to justice. Many examples of mega-litigation are used to illustrate the nature of this species of litigation, the challenges it presents, and the ways in which those challenges have been resolved.
