Authors from both sides of the Atlantic provide a collection of writings on civil justice. In response to Lord Woolf's proposals on civil-justice reform, the contributors argue that his examination does not go far enough, and that more radical reform and consideration are needed to achieve any significant improvement in the system. A major theme of the book is alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and its development. Specialists who have been at the heart of its development discuss its use both in commercial cases and within a community context, providing an examination of ADR's influence in England and Wales, and in the United States.
Publicly-funded legal services and the organization of civil justice under English Law are facing major change, and this book offers a contribution to the debate stimulated by government ideas of reforming legal aid and the civil-justice system. It combines the Legal Action Group's analysis of the current state of the civil-justice system with contributions from commentators around the world, all of whom are involved in the process of change in their own countries. Among the issues considered are whether cases can be "unbundled" so that litigants can undertake more self-representation, the best use that might be made of new technology, the role for public legal education and publicly-funded legal services in general, the future of civil litigation, and ways in which class or group actions can be handled by courts and by lawyers.
The need to attribute disputed utterance constantly arises, sometimes as a matter of legal urgency (contested 'confessions' or other documents), sometimes as the focus of fierce scholarly debate (was that new story just discovered really by D.H. Lawrence? QSUM finds not), sometimes as a popular diversion (whose words were on the 'Royal Tapes'?) It is in such situations that a scientific method of attribution - one which is objective - becomes desirable. The cumulative sum technique for authorship attribution (Cusum or QSUM, as the analytic procedure is now known) is just such a method. Invented in 1988 by Andre Q. Morton, long recognised as the foremost authority on the subject, QSUM is fully explained with copious illustrations. The technique works cross time and genre, and has already been used to solve several attribution problems. It has obvious uses in legal work, past and present (did Derek Bentley really make that confession? - again, QSUM finds not).

'This engaging and perceptive book fills a significant gap in the market. Whilst there are sound textbooks on the content and application of the law to social work practice, courtroom skills have received more complacent attention and Davis now challenges this robustly. In content the book deals comprehensively and informatively with the role of the social worker in the presentation of evidence and professional self in care proceedings. The strengths of the work are reinforced by the clarity of the author's style and structure, and the authenticity of the illustrative examples. These experiences of the author convey the reader direct to the courtroom and help make the book as readable as a good novel. Reflective questions are provided to help the reader to engage with the most important issues. Throughout her book Davis shows a clear concept of the professional role of the social worker and is empowering of good practice. Furthermore she never wavers from the centrality of the welfare of the child and her book shows sensitivity and commitment as well as informed practicality. This is an excellent and accessible book which gives an informed and practical introduction to courtroom skills to student social workers, but would also be valuable, and attractive in its vibrancy, to refresh the courtroom and evidence-gathering skills of more experienced social workers, including those in practice with clients other than children. I will be recommending this book to law students at level two but will also be recommending this work for the Social Care Library of the Local Authority for use by qualified staff and for training.' - Social Policy and Social Work Subject Centre (SWAP) 'Although written from the perspective of children and families social workers and covering mainly English legal proceedings, Davis's book should prove useful to all British social workers as a general guide to giving evidence in court...This book should be essential reading for social workers. It will undoubtedly help them to overcome their initial fears about going to court, providing practical tips to help improve giving evidence and coping with cross-examination.' - Involve Magazine Are you looking forward to giving evidence? What do you have concerns about? Do you know how to prepare written evidence that will be taken seriously in court? See You in Court is an accessible guide for social workers on being a witness in care proceedings. With little training and few resources available, social workers can find preparing for court a daunting part of their role. This book answers questions frequently asked by social workers in real cases, and gives information on court structures, basic rules of evidence, the roles of those involved in the proceedings, and court etiquette. It also discusses the process of giving evidence, including how to deal with cross-examination. The material is supported by case studies and checklists. This practical book is essential reading for social workers, particularly those working with children and families.
This collection of wide-ranging and powerful essays brings together policy makers at the highest level, campaigners for prison reform, chaplains and those working in prison charities. The contributors include the Lord Chief Justice, Sir David Ramsbotham, Baroness Helena Kennedy and many others. The question 'What is prison for?' lies at the heart of The Future of Criminal Justice. Should it be for punishing or rehabilitating the offender? Should it provde restoration and closure for both offender and victim? As well as answering these questions, the contributors explore how religious faith can make a difference to people's lives, whether in the prison ministry of chaplains, in the reconciliation between an offender and the victim, or in the vision for a fairer and better criminal justice system. With prisons and crime currently a focus of politics, The Future of Criminal Justice is a timely and invaluable contribution to the criminal justice debate.
