NEW GUIDE TO CHANCERY PROCEDURE: "COMMON LAWYERS" DON'T SWITCH OFF

Mediatelegal

HM Courts and Tribunal Service has provided a new Chancery Guide.

It is available at http://www.chba.org.uk/for-members/library/practice-directions-court-notices/chancery-guide-updated-october-2013

It is worthwhile reading for non-Chancery lawyers.  The book contains invaluable advice about disclosure, preparing for hearings, statements of case and witness statements.

It is difficult to see why the guidance it gives should be confined to those who practice in the Chancery Division.  It contains a mine of useful information about procedure that could be of benefit throughout the court system.
