The Adversarial Court System - Is it fair?
Stobbs, Nigel (2006) The Adversarial Court System - Is it fair? In Hayes, Sharon, Stobbs, Nigel, & Lauchs, Mark (Eds.) Social Ethics for Legal and Justice Professionals. Pearson Education, Sydney, pp. 59-70.
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.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
