A standard work often cited in court judgments, this title was once listed by a large city firm as the third most sought-after book in its library after the White Book and The Good Food Guide! This new edition of Documentary Evidence offers authoritative advice backed up by detailed analysis.

Written at a time when the Civil Procedure Rules and the Human Rights Act have bedded down somewhat, the 8th edition reflects on significant judicial activity around the subject, debating the more controversial issues and building on its reputation for being right. Its blend of detailed analysis and practical advice takes the practitioner through all issues that may arise within a chronological structure, showing when and how to take action. Changes in the 8th edition include:

  • Fully updated to cover judicial interpretation of the CPR, allowing the reader to interpret the rules in light of the most recent case law
  • Considers developments since enactment of the Human Rights Act 1998
  • Consideration of important new Court of Appeal decisions which fundamentally affect pre-action and non-party disclosure
  • Discussion of the important House of Lords' decision in Morgan Grenfell.
