How to Succeed as a Trial Lawyer includes everything you need to know that you didn’t learn in law school. It does not purport to be an academic treatment of the subject, but rather it provides practical pointers on everything from dealing with clients and adversaries to managing ethical dilemmas to marketing one’s practice. It is filled with practical and informational advice about litigation practice from pretrial practice to discovery, mediation and arbitration, and trials and appeals.
This useful book also includes tables of rules and a detailed index for quick references to find what you need. Each chapter concludes with a helpful checklist summarizing the major points of that chapter.
This text is a welcome addition to any litigator’s library, either to read cover to cover, or to use as a reference on a particular litigation task. It is an essentially practical, enjoyable, and useful volume.
How to Succeed as a Trial Lawyer is part of the Library’s Law Practice Management Collection.
