I am looking for any liturature that desribes the Beis din process,its methods and the scope of issues that it deals with in these times. Additionally, how litigants are summoned, how the process moves forward in-between sessions, etc.
If you read Hebrew a possible source is: Civil Procedure in Jewish Law (Seder HaDin) by Prof. Eliav Shochetman. 532 pp. A presentation of the norms of judicial procedure in Jewish law, based upon both classical sources of Jewish law and rulings of the rabbinical courts in Israel. This volume, for the first time, acquaints the legal community with the procedure for conducting cases in the Rabbinical courts according to Jewish law - in terms of both theory and practice. This volume, which focuses specifically upon civil procedure, also includes a comparison to the procedures in the courts of general jurisdiction.
