New Titles

New Titles from The Advocacy Club

Recently, John Hollander was so kind as to stop by the library with copies of these three titles for our collection. Many of you know of The Advocacy Club, which has been instructing new lawyers in advocacy skills for over ten years now. These three volumes make up a series of books from the Advocacy Club, and we think they’ll be popular with our students and new lawyers.


The three titles are:

  • Trial Advocacy: How Canadian Lawyers Prepare For and Conduct Civil Cases
  • Outlining: How to Structure Examinations in Civil Litigation
  • Estate Litigation: Trial Advocacy Techniques in Canadian Estate Cases

These are currently in process at the library, but please let us know if you’d like to see them and we’ll be happy to get them for you.

A quick note to mention that these two incredibly popular titles have recently been re-ordered and received in the library. If you would like to consult either of these books, please speak with a CCLA Library staff member. We’ve had to purchase these titles several times as other copies have gone missing, so we’d like to remind everyone that all books – even these – are for use in the courthouse only.
