Whole Record Review Law and Legal Definition

Whole record review refers to looking at all the evidence in the record. It means consideration of whatever evidence the record may contain that would detract from as well as support a party's position. The review may include, among others, pleadings, motions, intermediate rulings, evidence received or considered, questions and offers of proof, objections and rulings thereon, proposed findings, and a verbatim record of all motions, rulings and testimony.
