Cypriot Civil Procedure

Nikolaos D. Koulouris

Assistant Professor of the School of Law of the European Cyprus University


Civil Procedure is the law science dealing with the institutions and the

way of rendering justice. It constitutes the tool of the realization of the princi-

ple of the fair trial and the provision of legal protection to the civil and social

rights, as this principle is included in the article 6 of the European Convention on

the Human Rights. Cyprus follows the Anglo-Saxon legal system of common law

and equity, which relies on the principle of the judicial precedent. The procedure

before the Cypriot Courts is mainly governed by the Civil Procedure Rules enacted

by the Supreme Court. Still, the judge has a vast discretionary power to regulate

the procedure.
