Comprehensive and useful
Based on Claude Marseille’s well-known French publication, LegisPratique – Les objections à la preuve en droit civil, and with chapters written by a collection of expert contributing authors, The Law of Objections in Canada: A Handbook fills a gap in the marketplace by focusing exclusively on the 50 possible objections that lawyers can make in a trial under the common law.

This one-stop guide for the rules of law relating to objections is an excellent reference book: comprehensive, easy to understand and simple to navigate. Each chapter is organized into four sections: statement of law, rationale, scope and exceptions. The resulting logical flow and detailed explanations make this manual indispensable.

In addition, the at-a-glance Table of Objections is particularly useful.
