Explains the jury trial process and methods for trying a jury case to the law school student and beginning lawyer. Topics include the picking of a jury panel, opening statements, direct and cross-examination of four expert witnesses, jury instructions, and closing arguments. Concentrating on civil rather than criminal trials, the author emphasizes the importance of persuasion. He provides numerous humorous anecdotes and lengthy excerpts from a trial in which he represented the defendant. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
