Long considered a classic on trial advocacy, the third edition of Sopinka on the Trial of an Action has recently been published by LexisNexis. The second edition, published in 1998 (shortly after the sudden passing of The Honourable Mr. Justice John Sopinka in 1997), has been well-loved at this library. We’ve gone through several copies in the last 18 years, and we’re sure this new edition will inspire and educate a new generation of barristers.
For this edition, J. Kenneth McEwan, Q.C., has updated the previous version, while keeping so much of what made it a great book, and also included a new introductory chapter. For more a bit more on what to expect from this edition, check out the LexisNexis website.
The book is so new that we haven’t even let it out of our cataloguing area yet. If you would like to see it, however, just ask!
