Almost at the same time, two significant projects related to civil procedure have been launched. The first one is the ELI/UNIDROIT project ‘From Transnational Principles to European Rules of Civil Procedure’, while the other is the codification of the New Hungarian Civil Procedure Act. This article briefly summarizes the lectures delivered at the Conference on the ‘New Hungarian Civil Procedure Act and the Development of European Rules of Civil Procedure’ held in Budapest at the Hungarian Academy of Justice on 30 and 31 May 2016. The goal of the conference was the introduction of the ELI/UNIDROIT project to Hungarian lawyers as well as giving an insight into the Hungarian codification process for the international audience. At the conference, internationally renowned academicians who are participating at the elaboration of European Rules of Civil Procedure discussed the major topics of the draft European model rules, whereas Hungarian scholars presented the parallel issues of codification concerning the New Hungarian Civil Procedure Act.
