Communication in Legal Advocacy
University of South Carolina Press, 1990 - Communication in law - 245 pages
Communication in Legal Advocacy integrates work in legal theory, communication theory, social science research, and strategic planning to provide a comprehensive analysis of the communication process in trials. Responding to the energizing interest in alternative discipline resolution, calling attention to the ways in which negotiation, mediation, and arbitration interrelate with trials. This study blends traditional argumentative analyses such as the rational-world notions of adversary proceedings, presumption, burden of proof and essential issues with contemporary ideas of narrative rationality. The volume offers the reader a practical and strategic guide to effective trial advocacy, and it provides theoretical insights into trials as socially sanctioned mechanisms of dispute resolution.
