In Malaysia, civil processes are adversarial in nature, with an impartial judge or panel of judges assigned the unpleasant duty of making an effort to ascertain the truth in issuing an order or passing judgement. It is the responsibility and role of the parties to satisfy their respective legal and evidential burdens of proof when pursuing or opposing a claim by providing or contesting the relevant facts and evidence. Compulsory disclosure is essential to the fair and effective operation of this system.

This book outlines the appropriate disclosure legislation and procedure in Malaysia, serving as a thorough yet condensed reference on this crucial area of civil litigation. It explains the law, which was developed from the pertinent statutes, legal precedent, and judicial practise.

Its comprehensive coverage covers the law before to action, legal doctrines and procedure during action, as well as post-judgment discovery. Important topics including third party discovery, objections to disclosure and inspection, interrogatories, further and better particulars, and witnesses are covered in separate chapters. This book's coverage is further deepened by its specific discussion of discovery in businesses, partnerships, agencies, and arbitration.

The insightful examination of this crucial feature of litigation in Malaysia will make this book essential to civil litigators, judges, and judicial officers.
