This chapter focuses on the transformations in civil procedure rules and litigation practice of post-socialist states of central and eastern Europe, observed mainly through the example of Poland. They are presented from the perspective of the ethos of the Woolf Reforms. It also demonstrates the importance of legal culture and litigation practice for the implementation of these changes. Particular emphasis is placed on the role of the judiciary in civil litigation: it has been revolutionized by the Woolf Reforms and it has undergone transition in post-socialist states.
