The goal of this The Art and Science of Trial Advocacy coursebook is to combine both the theoretical and practical dimensions of trial advocacy to help both law students and practicing attorneys to excel at trial. The book offers plenty of practical advice for aspiring as well as experienced advocates, including 69 lists describing the essential elements of each part of the trial and almost 200 illustrative transcripts of trial advocates in action. But it is more than just a "how to" book. This is a book about the art and science of trial advocacy. It details technique and strategy, doing and thinking, creating and analyzing.

The Art and Science of Trial Advocacy guides the reader through the trial process, suggesting techniques and strategies for each stage of the trial process—pretrial, trial, and post-trial motions; jury selection; opening statements; direct and cross examination; and closing arguments. Included are illustrative transcripts explaining how to use the various techniques in an actual case; detailed guidance on the effective use of expert witnesses; and practical direction on the incorporation of exhibits and demonstrative evidence into case presentations.

The book discusses basic principles of effective communication and persuasion, including the importance of the advocate's credibility and examples of how to develop case presentations that maximize the persuasive impact on judges and juries.
