The Code of Civil Procedure (CPC) is a legal framework that governs the procedures and processes involved in civil lawsuits or disputes in many legal systems. It outlines the steps and rules that parties involved in a civil case must follow when presenting their case before a court. The specifics of the CPC can vary from one jurisdiction to another, but some common elements often found in the CPC include:

  1. Pleadings: These are formal written statements filed by the parties in a lawsuit. They include complaints, answers, counterclaims, and replies, outlining the claims and defenses of each party.

  2. Discovery: This phase allows parties to gather evidence from each other or from third parties through methods like depositions, interrogatories, requests for production of documents, and requests for admissions.

  3. Motions: Parties can file various motions during the course of a lawsuit, such as motions to dismiss, motions for summary judgment, or motions to compel discovery. These motions ask the court to make specific rulings or take certain actions.

  4. Pre-trial procedures: These include conferences between parties and the court to streamline the trial process, settle disputes, and potentially encourage settlement.

  5. Trial: The phase where the case is presented before a judge or jury. Each side presents evidence, witnesses, and arguments to support their claims or defenses.

  6. Judgment: The court’s decision based on the presented evidence and arguments.

  7. Appeals: The process through which a higher court reviews the decision of a lower court if a party believes there were errors in the application of the law or in the procedures during the trial.

The CPC is designed to ensure fairness, efficiency, and proper conduct during civil litigation. It aims to provide a structured process for resolving disputes between parties and achieving justice within the legal system. Specifics of the CPC can differ significantly based on the country or state’s legal system in which it is applied.
