Now in its 26th year of publication, the fifth edition of Advocacy in Practice is an authoritative and reliable guide for professionals to the art of advocacy.

This highly esteemed work has once again been written by the authoritative and well-respected author James L Glissan, QC, and provides useful and practical checklists for examination, cross and address. It also details when and what objections may be taken, and constructive hints and techniques for dealing with difficult witnesses, opponents and judges.

Restored to this edition are the classic cross-examinations from great advocates of the past, as well as a new chapter on general techniques of advocacy, which enlarge the scope of the work beyond the practising lawyer to encompass all areas of practical advocacy.
