This chapter begins with a description of the Greek system of civil procedure. It then discusses the main problems encountered in the administration of civil justice and alternative modes of dispute resolution. It is argued that Greek experiences with civil justice reform since the introduction of the Code of Civil Procedure (1967) show a mixed picture of legislative innovation and practical inertia. Parliament and government have been unusually active, and, in recent years, at an accelerated pace, in continuously amending, sometimes even at the price of increased complexity and short-lived impact, large parts of the Code in an effort to improve the administration of justice. But the actual improvements achieved have fallen short of both ambitions and expectations.

Keywords:   civil procedure, procedural reform, civil litigation, Greece, civil justice, alternative dispute resolution
