Documentary Evidence, 11th Edition
- Author: Charles Hollander
- Publisher: Sweet & Maxwell U.K.
Documentary Evidence is your comprehensive guide to the legal obligations surrounding the disclosure of information. It guides you through the ways that you should submit, analyse and present documentary evidence when in civil litigation, ensuring that nothing is missed and that full disclosure of relevant information is given by both sides in a case.
The new 11th edition is the most significant rewrite since the introduction of the CPR.

Most significant is a new chapter on limited, selective and implied waiver of privilege.

The chapter on destruction and deletion of documents has been rewritten.
There is a new chapter on access to court records.
The chapters on privilege have been reorganised and in part rewritten.
