By far the most thorough and detailed of the books in the field, Trial Techniques and Trialsis a comprehensive yet concise handbook that covers all aspects of the trial process and provides excellent examples illustrating strategies for opening statements, jury selection, direct- and cross-examination, exhibits, objections, and more. Extensive examples are clustered into three groups: personal injury, commercial, and criminal for ease in finding particular areas of trial practice. Tom Mauet and Steve Easton, renowned for their skills both as writers and trial attorneys, break the trial process down into its critical components for better and quicker comprehension by students and practicing attorneys who have little or no trial experience.

New to the Eleventh Edition:

  • Updates regarding recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Evidence
  • Additional emphasis on presenting evidence and argument visually, not just orally, for modern juries
  • Coverage of additional aspects of trial including site visits and foundation battles over emails and other electronic communications

Professors and students will benefit from:

  • Integrated discussion of the strategy and psychology of persuasion—particularly regarding jury selection, opening statements, and closing arguments
  • Numerous illustrations from tort cases, criminal cases, and commercial trials
  • Broad and flexible examples that allow readers to focus on either the plaintiff’s or the defendant’s side of the case—or both
  • Logical organization that follows the chronology of a trial process
  • A companion website with additional examples, a trial notebook, and other tools for trial lawyers
  • Video lectures about critical trial moments
  • Video demonstrations of effective trial advocacy, including a complete jury trial
