THE ART OF ADVOCACY

The precepts and practices of advocacy, a great trial lawyer discusses his profession at a learned level with dignity- rather than the drama of Courtroom and the illustrations he chooses are of a classical rather than sensational nature. The case- the client- and advocacy- ""a skillful handling of the facts""; the conduct of the trial from the opening address to the summation; Martin Littleton, the greatest American Jury lawyer, and other eminent practitioners- Lincoln and Cicero, Daniel Webster and Rufus Choate; the declining art of advocacy- and the discreditization of the lawyer; advocacy in the criminal courts and in the appellate courts--- all this is a course of learning in which respect for this profession- for its ethics as well as its skill- is communicated with the forensic persuasion of one of its great exponents. For a professional audience- rather than the popular market of the Reynolds' book.
