A statement of case is the legal term for any formal documents used in the courts of England and Wales, in which a party sets out its legal case. An old term for this is ‘pleading’, which was in use until the introduction of the Civil Procedure Rules 1998, which aimed to simplify the process for resolving a civil dispute. A statement of case may be a claim form, the particulars of a claim, or the defence, as well as other legal documents.
