The Technique of Persuasion provides a step-by-step guide to the skills of the advocate, taking the reader in a logical fashion from the preparation for trial itself to final speeches and pleas in mitigation.

Written in a highly entertaining style, it is an absorbing primer on the strategy and tactics of advocacy.

  • Advocacy is not merely something to be practised in a court of law, on one's feet, cross-examining witnesses or pesuading judges, almost all the work of a lawyer is a form of advocacy, all lawyers therefore can profitably read Sir David Napley's book.
