Documentary Evidence 15th Edition

Now in its 15th edition (first published 40 years ago), Documentary Evidence prides itself on being up to date. In the fast-moving world of civil procedure, and the vast amount of caselaw on disclosure and privilege, it is rewritten on a three-year cycle.

The book is a comprehensive guide to the legal obligations of disclosure. Logically presented and lucidly written, it provides detailed analysis and sensible practical advice. Following a chronological structure, it shows when and how a practitioner should take action in relation to the obligation to disclose. It is a standard work that is often cited in court judgments.

Under the Civil Procedure Rules the parties to an action are encouraged to adopt a cards-on-the-table approach toward the exchange of information, not just once litigation has commenced but before as well. It is likely in the early stages that a few documents will be identified as being relevant or key to the matter at hand. These will be used to provide advice as to the merit or not of proceeding with the dispute. If the decision is taken to proceed, the law imposes a requirement to make full and proper disclosure, which is the process whereby the parties to an action disclose to each other all documents in their possession, custody or power relating to matters in question in the action. This title deals with the nature and scope of the obligation to disclose.

  • the developing case law on duties of good faith in negotiation or renegotiation of contracts, noting particularly recent decisions through which the English courts may be becoming more open to giving effect to an express obligation to negotiate or renegotiate in good faith, whilst not accepting a general implied duty to negotiate or renegotiate in good faith;
  • cases on the scope of a claim in unjust enrichment where the negotiations for a contract break down, intention to create legal relations, certainty of agreement, formation of the contract following a battle of forms between the parties negotiating a contract, establishing the parties agreement to the variation (including by novation) of an existing contract, and applying the doctrine of consideration;
  • the continuing discussion about the role of emerging technologies in the formation of contracts, including recent work by the Law Commission and other agencies on smart legal contracts;
  • cases on the interpretation and application of statutory formality requirements for contracts and deeds, and the use of doctrines of estoppel and constructive trust to give effect to transactions which fail to comply with formality requirements;
  • the continuing reception (both positive and negative) by case law and commentators in England and in other common law jurisdictions of the decision of the Supreme Court in MWB Business Exchange Centres Ltd v Rock Advertising Ltd (2018) in relation to the binding force of no oral modification clauses;
  • the significance for topics discussed in the book of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union; this includes changes made to the EU law retained within English law after the end of the EU withdrawal agreement implementation period, and the impact of the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Act 2023 and other legislation, already passed or currently in progress or planned, to remove legislative provisions which derive from EU law.
