Now in its second edition,this popular and successful book is essential reading for all legal professionals and vocational students. The Civil Procedure Rules 1998 have redefined the role of pleadings and introduced a new legal vocabulary. They have altered significantly the age-old rules that say how cases should be pleaded. In this new edition, the section on pleadings has been completely rewritten to take account of such changes.; Every lawyer has to draft, and mistakes are often costly and sometimes catastrophic. Readable, practical and thorough, Drafting outlines, with constant reference to examples, the principles that apply to the drafting of all legal documents. Many of the principles have remained unchanged for years, but their misapplication still causes problems. This book outlines the authorities which govern the construction of documents, and indicates how to say what you really mean.
