Drafting is one of the most specialist and refined skills that must be mastered by those training for the Bar. Not only must a barrister be able to draft with absolute clarity and precision, but also use drafting skills effectively for persuasive and tactical purposes.
One can only learn drafting skills through practice, but once the elements have been grasped it becomes a transferable skill which can be used in the creation of many different legal documents. This Manual takes the trainee barrister through a range of different types of draft, including all the
major types required for general practice. The emphasis is, however, on statements of case, both because of their importance in civil litigation, and because they provide the best foundation for the learning process.
The Manual continues to grow and develop. It takes full account of recent changes in the law, the latest amendments to the Civil Procedure Rules 1998 and the Practice Directions. It also incorporates the guidance given by the new Queen's Bench Guide. In particular, the chapter on Judicial Review
has been substantially updated to reflect the new Part 54 procedure.
This is intended to be a comprehensive teaching Manual which will be of real practical use to all readers. Every example is followed by a detailed commentary explaining the draft. Throughout the Manual are a series of exercises, which will enable practitioners and trainees to practise and develop
their skills and to discover further techniques not included in the examples.
