Litigation Skills: A Practical Guide to Judge-alone Trials will focus on the necessary steps to take when preparing for judge-alone trials: from the charge being laid, entering a plea, case review and pre-trail applications, through to the determination of the presiding Judge at the judge-alone trial.
Everyday scenarios are provided, together with tips, statements, sample documents and flow charts. The relevant legislation is also provided for ease of reference.
