American Jurisprudence Proof of Facts (Am Jur Proof of Facts for short). This multi-volume (122 volumes) set can help you determine what you need to prove and how to use that information to win your case in a quick and efficient way. The set is not California specific, but includes such a vast amount of useful information that is should be seen as an extremely valuable tool to use while litigating your case. There are also lots of references to other sources to find more information on diverse and very specific subject areas.
Volumes are published sequentially and the set covers a wide range of topics in civil litigation and some criminal defense areas. Subjects covered include personal injury/torts, employment litigation, real estate, business torts and commercial litigation. It also discusses ways to avoid difficulties or failures of proof in presenting your information.
Each section includes legal analysis of the underlying law, checklists with elements of damages and proof, sample pleadings, discovery and motions. There are also sources for developing interview questions, interrogatories and even trial and deposition questions. It even includes sample proofs and questions to use when examining an expert witness.
Topical sections are written by judges, attorneys and experts in the subject field.
Plus, there is a five-volume index to the set to assist you in getting to the right article.
