In 2016 Civil Litigation, Evidence and Remedies is possibly the most challenging part of the Bar Professional Training Course for many students. It is also a topic were, if you can grasp the key concepts early and drill down and memorise the detail, it is possible to score highly and enjoy this fascinating area of law. This book assumes the reader has completed LLB or GDL successfully. This book is not intended to be a beautiful piece of prose. It seeks to avoid long winded narrative and instead distils the syllabus into bullet points that are easy to read and remember. The aim is to help students achieve a strong understanding early. Its purpose is to make civil litigation easier and more fun to understand.This book is based on the structure of the BPTC syllabus and will be updated as the syllabus evolves over time. It is definitely not to be read instead of the practitioner text or textbook. It should significantly help with revision.
