Détails des produits

Based on Claude Marseille’s well-known French publication, LegisPratique – Les objections à la preuve en droit civil, and with chapters written by a collection of expert contributing authors, The Law of Objections in Canada: A Handbook, 2nd Edition fills a gap in the marketplace by focusing exclusively on the 50 possible objections that lawyers can make in a trial under the common law.

The new 2nd Edition is a one-stop guide for the rules of law relating to objections and is an excellent reference book: comprehensive, easy to understand and simple to navigate.

Each chapter is organized into four sections: statement of law, rationale, scope and exceptions. The resulting logical flow and detailed explanations make this manual indispensable. In addition, readers will find the at-a-glance Table of Objections particularly useful.

What’s New In This Edition

  • Each chapter has been thoroughly updated to reflect new cases and developments in the law since the previous edition published five years ago
  • Additional content and insight from several new contributing authors

  • Judges who will be able to reliably comment and rule on issues of evidence
  • Law schools and law libraries who want to provide comprehensive research materials for law students, faculty and other users
