Trial Techniques and Trials, 9th ed by Best-selling author Thomas A. Mauet--renowned for his skills as a writer and litigator--breaks the trial process down into its critical components for better and quicker student comprehension. His clear, engaging writing features excellent examples that illustrate strategies for opening statements, jury selection, direct- and cross-examination, exhibits, objections, and more. The Federal Rules of Evidence are given in the appendix for easy reference.
The Ninth Edition combines the most effective chapters from Trial Techniques (trial process, the psychology of persuasion, trial preparation and strategy, bench trials) with those from Trials (jury selection, opening statements and closing arguments, direct and cross-examinations).An updated, modern design follows a revised, thoughtful organization. Examples in the Ninth Edition reflect the three principal types of trials: tort, criminal, and commercial. A flexible new approach allows students to either read all the examples or, if they prefer, focus on the plaintiff's and defendant's side of a particular kind of case. Online access has been provided to an edited video of a jury trial, formerly only available to users of Trials.
