The Burden of Proof provides valuable trial insights and structure for attorneys by analyzing the burdens of proof, production and persuasion as applied to the entire civil litigation process from case intake through appeal. It will prepare the reader for the most efficient and effective approach to litigation by framing the burdens of proof associated with common-law and statutory causes of action as well as the burdens applicable to discovery, dispositive motions, trial preparation, and appeals.
This meticulous, thorough, and scholarly book provides an understanding of the burden of proof and all it entails, beginning with its historical roots in the court systems of ancient Greece and Rome. Equally a practical work, it demystifies the theory and workings of the burden of proof in civil trials and how it profoundly shapes litigation practice.
