I am not a lawyer but commonly become involved in civil litigation and adjudication. I was recommended this book by a colleague who also qualified as a lawyer and found it enjoyable entertaining and informative.
This is a quick study of the process and principles of pleadings with useful examples that show both how to and how not to go about things. It is an excellent introduction to the art of preparing statements of case and replies at all levels.
This book is called an introduction but is far better than that it explains the theory and principles of pleadings and the reasoning behind whether to make replies or requests etc in simple terms that would comply fully with the requirements of the latest Civil Procedure.
The author uses a good 5 or 6 exclamation marks per page. I can understand how the author intends for the sentence to sound with an exclamation mark, but in written work the overuse of the exclamation mark is just annoying.(!!!) For the record, I am no Fowler, but I am sure he would not approve.
