About this publication

Objections in Civil Litigation deals in concise terms with the categories of objection raised in court and the leading and most useful authorities for each objection. A synopsis of the nature and content of each objection is included.

The book equips the busy practitioner confronted with an unruly witness with the tools to formulate a cogent and legally sound argument, at short notice, as to why a particular piece of testimony should be excluded. The opponent will similarly be assisted in dealing with the objection in a helpful and lucid manner.
