Product description

“The book is a must for any young lawyer starting practice as a solicitor or barrister in Hong Kong. It provides a guide for the litigation process from interview of the client to appeal. Ethics are well and sensibly covered and there is even a chapter on court etiquette... a useful addition to any Hong Kong lawyer’s library.” – review of the first edition in The New Gazette

It takes the reader through the complex litigation process from first interview with the client, through the preparation of the case for trial, interlocutory applications, the trial
itself and finally appeals. It also highlights the skills required to be successful and emphasises the ethical duties of advocates.

The third edition incorporates many new developments in the rules and techniques of practice and introduces many new cases and practice directions relevant to practice as of 2007.

This book, which is essential reading for all law students, is also likely to be of interest to practising advocates and all involved in the trial process.
