Pleadings Without Tears has become established as one of the most successful books on practical legal drafting in the context of litigation. This new eighth edition is fully updated to take account of Civil Procedure Rule (CPR) changes since the last edition.

It gives clear examples of how to set out relevant matters with clarity and precision and encourages the reader to give full consideration to concise and clear identification of the subject matter of the action, the issues of the case and the parties' respective positions in respect to those issues. With a wealth of practical examples and anecdotes - and illustrated throughout with cartoons - the light and entertaining style, combined with detailed analysis and explanation, enables the reader to easily acquire a good understanding of drafting.

This book, the first of its kind on Anglophone Cameroon, brings significant local context into the practice of law particularly at a juncture when civil practice has been radically altered by Cameroon's ongoing effort at harmonization of both the substantive and procedural laws applicable in the courts. The book covers a wide spectrum of topics including: the commencement of civil actions, jurisdiction, simplified recovery procedures and measures of execution, provisional execution and stay of execution. It provides a detailed analysis of the relevant rules of court applicable in both the high court and court of appeal. One of its major strengths lies in its use of recent cases to demonstrate the way Cameroonian judges have dealt with local procedural laws, as well as how the differences between Cameroonian indigenous rules of practice and those imported particularly from Nigeria and England are reconciled.
