Under the civil procedure rules civil cases are assigned to either the 'small claims track', 'fast-track' or 'multi-track'.

The multi-track procedure is applicable for all cases that are too expensive for the fast-track (currently more than 15,000), or are felt to be sufficiently complex as to warrant more flexible handling. In multi-track cases, the litigants attend a 'case management conference' to set out a timetable for subsequent events, and may be penalized for failing to meet deadlines. There are no pre-set fixed trial costs.
