This book includes a wealth of critical instruction on the preparation for and conduct of a trial, written by an experienced counsel. The text is simple and concise, with ample support from local and international case law, as well as statutory sources, including the Rules of Court 2012 and the Evidence Act 1950. The book is organised in a methodical format that includes trial preparation, various components of the trial itself, submissions, judgement, and trial advocacy ethics.
The well-written material, which is the result of serious thought and study, is extremely valuable in trial preparation, providing clear instruction and analytical insights. The extensive list of authority and sources listed provides a starting point for further research to ensure that counsel is well-prepared for trial.
In the midst of the cut and thrust of trial, a well-crafted system of headers, complemented by helpful cross-references, allows the trial lawyer to quickly refer to the book for the proper law, confirmation on a finer point of practise, practical direction, and relevant sources. When presiding over a trial, the judge can confidently reference the book.
The Trial Lawyer’s Companion is a book that any lawyer, whether a rookie lawyer, a seasoned attorney, or a busy judge, should have on hand.
