Description

Published in the wake of the enlargement of county court jurisdiction as a result of the Courts and Legal Services Act 1990, this book demonstrates how to conduct personal injury litigation. From the moment when the client's file is opened to the end of an appeal, it offers advice to practitioners - not only those who undertake occasional cases, but also specialists who need to keep themselves informed about new procedures, strategy and tactics. The book should also help advanced students to understand how civil litigation works in practice. A detailed explanation of the work usually undertaken exclusively by counsel offers insights for barristers and also solicitors who work with counsel or conduct their own cases. A collection of precedents and pleadings is included, together with specimen letters for use at all stages of the conduct of the case.
