Collection Spotlight - Young Advocates Series

Don’t be turned off by the title of this series – you don’t have to be a young or even a new advocate to find practical guidance in these short and easy-to-read handbooks. Recognizing a growing gap between law school and trial experience, John Hollander a long-time civil litigator before the Ontario bar, created this series to help fill that gap.

We will be highlighting each of the eight books here in the coming weeks, starting with interviewing skills.
