hey all.

I am a south african law student doing an assignment for Civil Procedure on "The constitutionality of furnishing security for costs in certain legal proceedings.

Im trying to compare it to the westminster system, because South Africa inherited most of its procedural rules from this system.

If anyone out there can give me any tips/advice (preferebly with references) it would be much appreciated!!

-Ive already compared it to the International Court of Justice, where security is not required for costs, but the court is available to all member states.

-Also, i cant find the UK Constitution on the net. Where can i find it??

Thanks to anyone who replies!

Try looking on here: http://www.parliament.uk/ I'm not sure if you'll find what you're looking for but I can't think of anywhere else that would have that sort of info. Hope this helps

The Uk doesnt have a written constitution we have to be awkward. You might find this site vaguely useful though.

The UK doesn't have a codified constitution written all in one document like places such as the US does. Ours is kind of imaginary and all over the place...

You're right. The UK does have a constitution, it's just all higgaldy piggaldy all over the place and not in one pamphlet sized document like the US'.

Here are some key things that definately have influenced the constitution as it stands today

Magna Carta
Bill of Rights
Act of Union
Various EU Acts
Human Rights Act
Scotland Act

The constitution has evolved from a melee of all these things plus a lot more.

Custom and tradition also play a huge part.

thanx to u who replied.

If there is no written constitution, anyone have any comments on this:
"The constitutionality of furnishing security for costs in certain legal proceedings"?

We sometimes have to furnish security in certain instances. According to your procedural rules, is it permitted or not? Why/Why not?

What do you mean: "furnish security for costs"? You mean a bond?
