    This book SUMMARY PROCEDURE FROM THE BENCH is a fusion of the articles Trial Technique of Criminal Cases Covered by RSP and Trial Technique of Civil Cases Covered by RSP found in Compendium of Legal Treatises 1 and Compendium of Legal Treatises 2 respectively with considerable revisions to update the law students and law practitioners of the latest law and jurisprudence about the simple subject matter in theory yet complicated in practice. There are many cases dismissed in court for seemingly lack of knowledge about the 1991 Revised Rule on Summary Procedure. As the title suggests, the presentation of this book on summary procedure is from the perspectives of the author as a presiding judge with a rich experience in summary procedure as a former public prosecutor and as a former public attorney in the National Capital Region. The important issues in RSP encountered by trial lawyers, from the side of the prosecution or from the side of the defense are tackled in this book peppered with carefully selected cases. This book is valuable to law practitioners so that justice can be served, on the basis of substantive merit and not on procedural defect in RSP. And for the law students, this is a good way to start towards the intricate path of the mastery of Remedial Law, the Bar subject with the highest percentage in the grading system at 20%.
