Trial Advocacy in a Nutshell was one of the first works to analyze and illustrate discrete courtroom skills and techniques in the context of principles of persuasion. The Fifth Edition builds on that tradition with the concept of argument-centered narratives. Part 1 provides a concrete and detailed guide for developing credible stories that support advocates’ desired inferences. Part 2 analyzes and illustrates strategies, techniques and rules for presenting argument-centered narratives effectively during all phases of trial. The Fifth Edition incorporates a number of new features that make the book more indispensable for trial lawyers than ever. For example, the Fifth Edition discusses the most important of the Federal Rules of Evidence, and devotes a separate chapter to rules and strategies for presenting testimony from expert witnesses.
