Litigation is the process of taking an argument between private individuals or legal entities before a court or tribunal for adjudication, the result of which creates a legal precedent which may be relied upon in future as per the doctrine of stare decisis.
In this way, litigation forms the entire basis for the common law as it is in effect an adversarial system of justice which allows the veracity of each side’s conflicting story to be interrogated against the backdrop of a system of well-established legal principles.
Our industry-focused range of litigation titles is led by Practice and Procedure in the Superior Courts (3rd Ed) by Benedict Ó Floinn.
