Modern Trial Advocacy: Analysis and Practice, Canadian Fourth Edition (Paperback)
Now in its fourth edition, Modern Trial Advocacy: Canada is the first and last word in Canadian trial practice. This classic handbook, published by the National Institute for Trial Advocacy, gives practitioners a detailed road map for conducting a trial. Expanding on the original text written by Steven Lubet for an American audience, experienced Toronto trial lawyers Cynthia Tape and Julie Rosenthal guide the beginning advocate in developing a winning case theory through all phases of trial. They explain how to present a case as a story - and powerfully and persuasively tell that story to the jury.
Modern Trial Advocacy: Canada provides not only Canadian case law and statutes, but also valuable insight into the specific elements of Canadian litigation practice as itpresents a realistic and contemporary approach to learning and developing trial advocacy skills. This book offers a sophisticated, theory-driven approach to advocacy training that distinguishes it from other books in the field.
The fourth edition has been updated with current citations to case law, statutes, and rules and the latest "best practices" for using technology in the courtroom.
