Concentrating on the overall approach to trying a case, it weaves persuasion and procedure to help lawyers and law students prepare for their first trials with confidence. Addressing everything from technology to where to sit and what to say, it meshes the practical advice and how-to instructions with sophisticated persuasive techniques.
