The first edition of this original book, published in 1988, was acclaimed by the legal profession and reviewers in the United Kingdom and overseas. The book was recognised as the first systematic analysis of the techniques of crass-examination in criminal practice, dispelling the obscure and elitist image of cross-examination as being all a matter of ‘natural ability’.
Analysis facilitates a professional approach to training and practice in cross-examination skills. This approach has grown rapidly during the six years since publication, and is now widespread.
The second edition has been thoroughly revised, substantially rewritten, and expanded. Aimed at practice, it integrates cross-examination with fact-finding and advocacy generally, including examination-in-chief, examination, speeches, and original insight into exposing mistakes or lies.
This author’s 45 years of experience of the Bar and bench will prove indispensable to those seeking proficiency in criminal advocacy in English-speaking courts.
