The information contained in this book will enable the law practitioner to be grounded in the discipline as well as point out relevant and interesting legal issues to clients and the court as need be. This book is heavily annotated to for the reader who wishes to use it as a stepping-stone to a more in-depth analysis of any particular topic.
