About this publication

Legal Drafting: Civil Proceedings has been written to bridge the gap between the academic study of law and its practical application in so far as the preparation of court documents is concerned. Drawing on his experience in coaching pupils at the Bar, the author explains elementary matters and poses useful reminders to more experienced practitioners.

The second edition of Legal Drafting: Civil Proceedings has been updated to address changes in the law. It now includes a section on the preparation of documents for arbitrations as well as an extended chapter on the all-important task of preparing heads of argument.
