Pleadings Without Tears has established itself as one of the most popular publications on practical legal drafting in litigation. This new ninth version has been completely revised to reflect all changes to the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) from the previous edition.

Pleadings Without Tears gives a practical and analytical look into legal drafting, allowing the reader to gain confidence in tackling this often overly intimidating subject. It concentrates on key abilities and fundamental rules while explicitly addressing each stage of the process, and it goes beyond a simple listing of important precedents and authority. This book urges the reader to give full consideration to brief and unambiguous identification of the subject matter of the action, the issues of the case, and the parties' different perspectives on those issues by providing clear examples of how to spell up essential matters with clarity and accuracy.

The light and amusing manner, along with rigorous analysis and explanation, makes it easy for the reader to gain a thorough understanding of drafting.
