Covers all aspects of litigation from its basics to:
- case management
- conducting the hearing; and
- dealing with the aftermath.
It covers the conduct of civil litigation of all kinds, rather than any area of law particularly and contains examples of what can be done, how to do so, and includes how to ask questions as well as tips on what works, or does not work.
The book draws on over 35 years of the authors' experience in courts and tribunals, including the making of mistakes when doing so and although based on UK principles, is relevant throughout the English- speaking world where the principles of conducting litigation are essentially the same.
The book has mainly non-legal quotations as aide memoires, and is written in a way that is intended to be easy to understand, and practical, rather than academic making it ideal for anyone presenting a case before a tribunal or court.
