Product description

As cases move up the Court hierarchy different rules and processes apply, which can be daunting for those unfamiliar with what is expected. Litigation Skills: A Practical Guide to Appellate Advocacy focuses on the practical aspects of preparing for and appearing at criminal appeals. It is primarily for junior and intermediate lawyers who appear in appeals in the District Court, High Court and to a lesser degree the Court of Appeal. However, senior practitioners may find value in the straightforward guidance provided by the book.

From reviewing the file and meeting the client, identifying the correct appeal Court and filing the notice of appeal, through to preparing both written and oral submissions and appearing at the hearing, Litigation Skills: A Practical Guide to Appellate Advocacy is a must-have resource.
