Trial Advocacy in a Nutshell
This text concentrates on specific skills and techniques associated with trying cases. Rather than stating vague conclusions such as, "Be dramatic" or "Show no mercy to perjurers on cross," it identifies and illustrates specific tactics and styles of examination and argument. This text sets out techniques that can be molded to the reader's personal style, rather than ask submerging the reader's style into preconceived professional norms. This is done by alternative suggestions for reacting to common situations using a variety of factual settings and legal issues. The text provides the scope and highlights you need to excel in understanding this field. This will enable you to answer exam questions more quickly and accurately, and enhance your skills as an attorney.
