Description of Product

The book provides a balance between analytical discussion of the principles and the practical application of the law and includes numerous illustrations and practice-related situations for this purpose. It offers students an intensely detailed and integrated portrait of the litigation process (including procedure and advocacy) and is therefore a vital source of reference for their studies. The book recognises that this subject is particularly difficult primarily because of the difficulties inherent in the Evidence Act (a significant part of which remains in the state it was enacted in 1893), and the tension between this statute and the constantly developing common law. No effort is spared in tackling these problems and examining all applicable sources of law. This highly successful publication has already sold thousands of copies in the course of the first five editions. Highly acclaimed in and out of Singapore since it was first published 25 years ago, this work covers all developments since the fifth edition was published in 2015 with legislative and case law updates, specifically: 1. Amendments since the last edition covering many critical case law developments in multiple areas. 2. New chapter on ethical conduct in the course of litigation (see chapter 24). 3. Significant improvements to the majority chapters through comprehensive and intensive analysis of principles and laws. 4. Guidance throughout the book on approaches to difficult evidential points. 5. Highlighting critical areas for consideration of judges, practitioners and students.
