The book provides a complete, succinct and practical discussion of how to litigate effectively a civil or criminal matter through the trial process to appeal.

With an emphasis on organization, the reader is given practical information on the preparation and litigation of a case, from the initial client interview, through the pre-trial process, to preparing and organizing for trial, conduct of the trial itself, and then the appeal process. At each stage, the author provides helpful tips and examples designed to build the kind of advocacy skills that lead to winning results.

This third edition has greatly increased the material on how to conduct criminal trials, so that the text is a valuable resource for both civil and criminal actions.

New segments include:-

  • preparation of a criminal case
  • running of a criminal trial
  • Crown and defence opening and closing submissions
  • Crown disclosure and third party production
  • limitations on Crown cross-examinations
  • the conduct of a voir dire
  • arguing a Charter motion.
