I must preface my remarks upon this subject by stating that
the Commercial Court to which I allude has no existence in
Ireland, and therefore I am at a disadvantage in dealing
with a system of judicial procedure with which I have no
personal experience. I am somewhat in the same position
in which an English lawyer would be if he were to attempt
to address an English audience on the practice of the Estate
At the same time, it may serve a useful purpose to show
how far the great commercial and mercantile classes have
been able to bend the rigidity of judicial procedure, and for
this purpose I propose to give a brief account of what is
called in England the "Commercial Court" though really
it is a separate list of a certain class of Common Law or
King's Bench Actions.
In my account I propose to rely upon Mr. Mathew's
Practice of the Commercial Court, supplemented by
information obtained from professional brethren in England.
