The purpose of this seminar is to help you write better court documents.

As well as pleadings in the strict sense – statements of claim, statements of defence, counterclaims and replies – I discuss some other common court documents.

The seminar is designed to be very practical. There are not many references to cases. Instead, I focus on basic principles that are relevant to all court documents, then apply those principles to common court documents. I also discuss some specific issues that crop up often when writing those common court documents. There are case studies for discussion. You will get more out of the seminar if you read the whole of this booklet before coming to the seminar, give some preliminary thought to each of the case studies, and do a first draft of the statement of claim in case study 1.
