No two cases are the same. While your case could go any way and take any path, the one constant is the White Book. Whether you settle, make it to court, go to appeal or further, make sure you do things right. Standard across the legal market, more judges and lawyers use it than anything else. Why? Not only for the latest version of the rules, but also for the commentary provided by those best placed to advise you on what to do, so you can advise your client on what to do.
