Winning at Trial uses innovative techniques to teach students and experienced lawyers alike the art of presenting a clear and compelling case in order to win at trial. These skills are gained first by observing then by doing, and in Winning at Trial the reader is enabled to do just that by analyzing transcripts and viewing almost four hours of footage from the O. J. Simpson trial and a focus group deliberating a civil trial. This book is one of the most comprehensive trial advocacy resources published in recent years. Students, lawyers, judges, and librarians alike will benefit from Read's wisdom. Winner of the international Association for Continuing Legal Education (ACLEA) 2008 Award for Professional Excellence.
