Jones & Buckle has remained the definitive work of reference on civil procedure in the magistrates' courts for over a century.
This new 10th edition of Jones and Buckle The Civil Practice of the Magistrates' Courts in South Africa Volume I includes the full text of the Magistrates' Court Act 32 of 1944, with commentary, comprehensively revised and brought into line with the new Magistrates' Courts Rules promulgated in 2010.
The new edition of this work will continue to be regularly updated to reflect legislative changes and new case law.
Reviews of the previous editions:
‘To practise law in the magistrates’ courts without Jones & Buckle is like an attempt to study theology without the Bible.‘
SA Law Journal, reviewing the 8th edition, 1991
‘South Africa’s leading text on procedure in the lower courts, far ahead of all its competitors and, indeed, the only work in its field that is absolutely indispensable to the civil-litigation practitioner.‘
De Rebus, reviewing the 9th edition, 1997
