Winning at Trial
Chosen the best book from over 300 entries, Winning at Trial has been singled out by the Association of Continuing Legal Education (ACLEA) for its clarity and innovative teaching methods. Winning at Trial by Shane Read is the only book that teaches trial skills by analyzing video and transcripts of actual trials. It is also the only book that reveals the secrets of jury decision-making through the use of video in collaboration with one of the nation's foremost jury consultants, DecisionQuest. This innovative book is being used by law schools throughout the country for both their introductory and advanced trial advocacy classes, as well as by law firms for their training programs. The author, a seasoned trial lawyer and professor, has carefully selected video and transcripts from actual trials (4 hours of video on two DVDs) that show lawyers demonstrating both great and terrible skills in the courtroom - which teach trial techniques and strategy in an interesting and memorable way.
