A Practical Approach to Effective Litigation 7ed, 2009  $150.00 

By Susan Blake 

This book analyses the key skills that a professional techniques a lawyer needs to handle a civil case effectively following the litigation process from beginning to end. It presents these skills in a practical, and readable stye, A Practical Approach to Effective Litigation covers  professional skills in analysis, dealing with a client, writing legal documents and formulating arguments to pursue a case efficiently and effectively.

The context in which litigation is conducted is changing rapidly and radically, and this is fully reflected in this new edition. There are widespread concerns about how litigation is funded, and how costs accumulate, and areas like th use of expert evidence are under development. The ways in which lawyers research law and manage cases have changed fundamentally with the use of IT, and the structures within which lawyers work are changing radically with the implementation of the Legal Services Act 2007. With the increased use of ADR, this book takes into account the wider options for dispute managementand resolution, but from the point of view that litigation will always provide the ultimate context where ADR fails.

A Practical Approach to Effective Litigation demonstrates how to combine knowledge of legal principles and the rules of procedure and evidence wiht professional skills to get results for a real client in a real case. It will be of use to anyone starting work in legal practice or completing training to be a barrister or solicitor.
