Abstract

The adversarial system of litigation assumes that parties are able to present their disputes before an impartial tribunal, by use of professional legal advocates. This work critiques some of the fundamental assumptions of the adversarial system and examines two case studies in which it has failed to deliver justice for litigants.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
