This article first outlines the existing problems of the Cypriot civil justice system. It then explains the improvements recommended by the recent report published by a committee under Lord Dyson, which are mostly drawn from the system of England and Wales. These proposals are then critically evaluated, arriving at the eventual conclusion that, while foreign systems may serve as positive examples, they too are affected by their own problems and must not be followed blindly.
