"Discovery is a central element of civil litigation--it is a mechanism in civil litigation to prepare both parties to a lawsuit to know the case that they have to meet so they can prepare for trial or resolve their disputes by settlement. The book covers the principles of and approaches to discovery, and gives practical advice on the techniques and tactics to be deployed, and ethical issues. As well, the book serves as a "how-to" quick manual on conducting discovery in all common law jurisdictions in Canada (i.e., all provinces except Quebec) and explains and updates the discussion in light of current e-discovery practices."--
