The previous two editions were by Peter Hibbert

Civil Evidence for Practitioners covers the evidential issues that apply to each stage of an action, following the logic of the action itself. Its success as Iain Goldrein defined it in his review in the New Law Journal was based on fundamentally practical foundations:-

""The book's chapters take the litigator through the process of preparing the case from the initial instructions through pleadings and discovery, via negotiations and interlocutory applications to preparations for trial and the trial itself. The advice given is both practical and authoritative, but in citing authority the author has not found it necessary to resort to a single footnote...;

The third edition comes at a time when three key developments have placed evidence ever firmly at the heart of successful litigation: The CPR and case management mean ever more emphasis on avoiding waste of costs - in turn meaning that practitioners must focus clearly on the evidence that is necessary for the case and no more, as well as its weight

The advent of conditional fee agreements means accurate assessment of the risks inherent in bringing a case becomes of paramount importance to the financial success of the lawyer. Civil Evidence for Practitioners is unique among works of evidence - it is practical, readable and authoritative.
