Product details

Summary Judgment: A Practical Guide is a subscription based product including both the printed loose-leaf and LexisMobile publications. Updates for 12 months (print and mobile) are included in the price.

Summary Judgment: A Practical Guide promotes uniformity of practice.

The work, whilst acknowledging the need for an unfettered judicial discretion, identifies patterns within the granting of summary judgment applications, thereby rationalising the subject matter and providing practical guidelines for the preparation, presentation, opposition to, and adjudication, of such applications.

This title attempts to reduce inconsistencies and to promote uniformity of practice. The publication is maintained in a single binder with updates published annually.
