As veteran litigator and author James C. Morton points out in the Introduction to the latest edition of Procedural Strategies for Litigators, "In the adversary system, the lawyer's duty … is to fearlessly raise every issue, advance every argument and ask every question that will help a client obtain the benefit of every remedy or defence authorized by law." The main objective of this book is to enable lawyers to do just that by helping them to recognize the strengths and weaknesses inherent in the civil procedure of Ontario, and to understand how to best leverage them for the benefit of their clients.
