Malaysian Litigation Series: Disclosure

Original price was: RM240.00.Current price is: RM216.00.

Civil proceedings in Malaysia are adversarial in nature with an impartial judge or panel of judges discharging the unenviable task of attempting to determine the truth in making an order or passing judgment. In prosecuting or resisting a claim, it is the role and obligation of parties to discharge their respective legal and evidential burden of proof by presenting or disputing the facts and evidence. To ensure the fair and efficient functioning of this system, compulsory disclosure plays a crucial part.

This book sets out the applicable law and procedure relating to disclosure in Malaysia, providing a comprehensive but succinct reference on this important area of civil litigation. It clearly states the law derived from the relevant legislation, case law and the practice of the court.

Its thorough coverage discusses the law pre-action, the legal principles and procedure during action as well as discovery post-judgment. Separate chapters are devoted to important matters like third party discovery, objections to disclosure and inspection, interrogatories, further and better particulars and witnesses. The specific consideration of discovery in companies, partnerships, agency and arbitration further adds depth to the coverage of this book.

Civil litigators, judges and judicial officers will find this book invaluable for its illuminating treatment of this key aspect of litigation in Malaysia.
