Book

Jean Graham-Hall; Gordon Smith

The principal aim of this classic book is to provide guidance and encouragement for the expert who is a newcomer to personal participation in legal proceedings in his or her professional role. "book is intended to fulfil: not to furnish grist for the intense analysis of recondite issues, but to give professionals without extensive experience of the adversarial way of resolving disputes a practical introduction to the problems which they are likely to face, and to the ways in which they should prepare for and perform their various functions. As such it fills a real need." Lord Mustill, Foreword
