Written pleadings are the starting point of every civil action and the importance of getting them right from the outset cannot be over-emphasised. If badly drafted, the pleadings may exclude the leading of crucial pieces of evidence, or contain insufficient information to support the remedy sought. Far too many actions fail because of badly drafted pleadings. This book takes the practitioner back to basics with a clear analysis of written pleadings.
