In line with earlier editions, this book enables the student practitioner to learn the technique of advocacy by way of an analytical approach. Judge Michael Hyam believes that the principles of advocacy may be learnt by application and practice. He illustrates a method of preparing speeches which may be adapted to any kind of case, and this edition amplifies the chapters on this aspect of advocacy.

The principles are explained by analysis and illustrated with examples of both good and bad practice. The reader should find that in this way the rules of good advocacy become clear and that potentially serious mistakes can be avoided. This book has expanded upon the areas of preparation in different types of cases, on the form of submissions and on advocacy in the family courts.
