Authored by practitioners and a senior assistant registrar, with input from litigation practitioners, judicial officers and law academics, this guide is lighthearted yet serious in import. It offers sound counsel on proper etiquette outside and within a courtroom, encompassing a wide range of situations with instructive illustrations and examples. Especially useful is the table of words, phrases and modes of address which provides sample terms and expressions of common courtesy and respect which should be accorded to fellow members of the legal fraternity. Suitable for both junior and seasoned practitioners, the book provides invaluable guidance on conduct becoming of a member of a noble and honourable profession.
