Causes of Action, Defences, and Remedies

Take the guesswork out of case and trial preparation

Begin case and trial preparation with a better starting point

Causes of Action, Defences and Remedies is a collection of articles, or ‘toolkits’, each focused on a specific cause of action based in tort or contract. Each toolkit provides an overview of the cause of action and includes leading cases, relevant legislation, checklists, related defences, model pleading language and secondary source references.

Plot case strategy from both perspectives

Causes of Action, Defences and Remedies includes cases in which the cause of action was successfully prosecuted and in which it was successfully defended—so you can plot case strategies from both perspectives. It also collects all secondary sources relevant to the cause of action or defence so that you can be confident you haven’t overlooked anything.
