Litigation is a very important part of the legal system and it is the system used to decide cases including both civil and criminal cases. Litigation is the actual taking of legal action against a person or entity. it’s parts are made up of the presentation of the argument in a courtroom, where both sides share facts and evidence, and the result is decided by a judge or jury.
For example, a case can be litigated to decide if someone is guilty of a crime, or in the case of civil litigation, whether or not a company is responsible for an injury to a worker. Litigation includes many acts such as filing the lawsuit, preparing evidence, deposing witnesses, researching case law and more in preparation for trials before a judge.
