Discovery & Disclosure - 2nd edition is written by practitioners with the practitioner in mind, and thus gives you a thorough understanding of discovery and disclosure procedures in both civil and criminal cases, and an examination of the important procedural differences that you need to be aware of. This unique reference source gives you unique guidance to the application of discovery and disclosure before quasi-judicial bodies such as the EAT, coroner's courts and tribunals of inquiry, but also provides a useful examination of all the latest civil and criminal case law that has impacted on the subject.
Since the second edition of Discovery and Disclosure in 2013 there have been a number of significant developments in the area of litigation.
The first supplement brings the main work up to date to 2015 and deals with the developments in litigation since the publication of the 2nd edition.
