It is widely used in prominent law schools throughout the U.S. and in many of NITA's own trial advocacy programs. Steven Lubet guides the beginning advocate from developing a winning case theory through all phases of trial. He explains how to present a case as a story, and how to tell the story to the jury powerfully and persuasively. Modern Trial Advocacy presents a realistic and contemporary approach to learning and developing trial advocacy skills. This book offers a sophisticated theory-driven approach to advocacy training that distinguishes it from other books in the field. In addition to valuable sections on uses of theory, theme, and story frame; the persuasive value of inferences and cognitive theory; and discussion of witness 'credibility variables,' explaining how to bolster or undermine testimony, this edition includes: a brand new chapter on using electronic visuals and technology in the courtroom; and new enhanced video content - top NITA faculty demonstrate the core techniques discussed in the book so you can observe and learn these skills in a new way"--Unedited summary from book cover
