Case Preparation Summary

Case Preparation: 2009-2010 by The City Law School

Written by experienced practitioners, Case Preparation seeks to equip trainee barristers with the tools and techniques required to effectively identify, analyze and present sound and convincing legal arguments and advice to both clients and the courts in order to win the case. Providing highly practical guidance on all aspects of preparing a case, the manual charts the logical progression of a barrister's case, from developing an intial understanding of the relevant facts and legal context and undertaking detailed analysis of the key issues and evidence, to finally constructing a sound and persuasive argument to present to the court. Dedicated chapters on legal research guide the reader through the plethora of print and electronic sources available and provide invaluable practical guidance on how to conduct successful legal research, while chapters focusing specifically on reading and interpreting cases, and presenting and recording research trails, highlight the process of research undertaken. Worked examples are also contained throughout to highlight legal research in action. The manual also introduces the trainee barrister to a systematic C.A.P. (Context, Analyze, Present) approach to analyzing a client's case designed to provide an efficient and reliable method for preparing sound answers and convincing arguments to legal problems. Covering both civil and criminal cases, realistic sets of papers are used to demonstrate the C.A.P approach in practice and additional sets of papers are provided to encourage students to practise developing their case preparation skills. Case Preparation is essential reading for all trainee barristers and is also a useful source of reference for junior practitioners wishing to refresh or refine their case preparation skills.
