Civil pre-trial procedures
« on: May 15, 2019, 10:16:16 pm »
Hey there, first time posting   ;D
What's the distinct differences between pleadings, discovery of documents and exchange of evidence? They all seem to share a lot in common, especially with one of the purposes being something along the lines of reducing the element of surprise. How would you answer a distinguish question relating to the three?
