Abstract:

"NITA's best-selling text, Modern Trial Advocacy: Analysis and Practice,has set the standard for trial advocacy texts since 1993. It is widely used in prominent law schools throughout the U.S. and in many of NITA's own trial advocacy programs. Steven Lubet guides the beginning advocate from developing a winning case theory through all phases of trial. He explains how to present a case as a story, and how to tell the story to the jury powerfully and persuasively. Modern Trial Advocacy presents a realistic and contemporary approach to learning and developing trial advocacy skills. This book offers a sophisticated theory-driven approach to advocacy training that distinguishes it from other books in the field. In addition to valuable sections on uses of theory, theme, and story frame; the persuasive value of inferences and cognitive theory; and discussion of witness 'credibility variables,' explaining how to bolster or undermine testimony, this edition includes: a brand new chapter on using electronic visuals and technology in the courtroom; and new enhanced video content - top NITA faculty demonstrate the core techniques discussed in the book so you can observe and learn these skills in a new way"--Unedited summary from book cover.
