I am giving a webinar on the 3rd September 2020 “Pleadings (statements of case) for personal injury lawyers”.
“It is important that parties properly distinguish between a concise statement of facts and recitation of the evidence upon which they seek to prove such facts. Every bar student is taught that they should plead facts and not evidence, but it is regrettably a distinction that is all too often lost sight of and is increasingly responsible for extraordinary prolixity in pleadings”
