The book strikes a balance between analytic examination of the concepts and practical application of the law, and it accomplishes this goal by including many examples and practice-related scenarios. It provides students with a comprehensive and integrated picture of the litigation process (both procedure and advocacy), making it an invaluable resource for their study. The book recognises that this topic is especially challenging, owing to the problems inherent in the Evidence Act (a large portion of which remains in effect in the state in which it was established in 1893) and the friction between this legislation and the continually evolving common law. In addressing these issues and studying all relevant legal sources, no effort is spared. Thousands of copies of this incredibly popular product have been sold in the first five editions.

Since its original publication 25 years ago, this book has been highly regarded both in and outside of Singapore, and it now includes legislative and case law revisions that cover all changes since the fifth edition was released in 2015, including:
1. Updates since the last edition, including several important case law developments in a variety of fields.
2. A new chapter on ethical behaviour during litigation has been included (see chapter 24).
3. Significant enhancements to the bulk of chapters thanks to a thorough and in-depth examination of concepts and legislation.
4. Guidance on how to address tough evidentiary areas throughout the book.
5. Highlighting crucial areas for judges, practitioners, and students to consider.
