Designed to teach the techniques of advocacy and to point out errors which can occur at trial, this volume explores such areas as the preparation of a case, expert witnesses, the preparation of witnesses, cross-examination, calling the defendant client and pleas in mitigation.
The Technique of Persuasion provides a step-by-step guide to the skills of the advocate, taking the reader in a logical fashion from the preparation for trial itself to final speeches and pleas in mitigation. Written in a highly entertaining style, it is an absorbing primer on the strategy and tactics of advocacy. * Now in its fourth edition, this is one of the very few books which can truthfully claim to have genuine appeal to both solicitors and barristers at every level of experience * Advocacy is not merely something to be practised in a court of law, on one's feet, cross-examining witnesses or pesuading judges, almost all the work of a lawyer is a form of advocacy, all lawyers therefore can profitably read Sir David Napley's book
