Why go to court alone? Take your mentor with you!
This publication is essential for: barristers in their first few years of practice.
Current to: December 1, 2010
Recognized as a "thorough and well-organized civil trial practice guide", this winner of the ACLEA Award for Outstanding Achievement in Publications gathers key information about trial preparation and strategy from a cross-section of Vancouver's top advocates, some of whom are now serving on the bench. An invaluable resource, this handbook combines black-letter legal and procedural material with very practical information, including objectives, pointers, and strategy.
This Third Edition has been completely revised to cover the Supreme Court Civil Rules. We have added new precedents, including a case plan proposal and a case plan order, and have added an addendum on professional civility to the chapter on ethical and professional responsibilities.
Examples, anecdotes, suggested forms for written materials, charts, at-your-fingertips information schedules and other assorted "barrister's tricks" make this 6" x 9" softcover book a best seller. Sample questions and scripts are also included where appropriate.
The book is updated regularly, and subscriptions include online access with search capability and links to the full text of case law and legislation, and precedents on CD-ROM.
