Theory of the Case Law & Legal Definition


Theory of a case refers to the comprehensive and orderly mental arrangement of principles and facts, which are conceived and constructed for the purpose of securing a judgment or decree of a court in favor of a litigant. It can also be a particular line of reasoning of either party to a suit, for bringing together certain facts of the case in a logical sequence and correlating them in such a manner that it produces a definite result or conclusion in the decision-maker's mind which is favored by the advocate.
