NITA's best-selling text, Modern Trial Advocacy: Analysis and Practice, has set the standard for trial advocacy texts since 1993. All NITA's renowned full trial programs use the text, as do prominent law schools nationwide. Steven Lubet guides the beginning advocate from developing a winning case theory through all phases of trial. He explains how to present a case as a story, and how to tell the story to the jury powerfully and persuasively.
Modern Trial Advocacy presents 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.
"Not only do I require this book in every trial practice class I teach, but I also recommend it to practicing attorneys whenever they ask me what trial practice text they should buy. This is a must for any trial lawyer's library."--(Barbara Bergman, Professor of Law, University of New Mexico, School of Law)
"Modern Trial Advocacy is not just a cookbook of legal skills-it gives examples of why a lawyer should do something versus mimicking a formula to copy."--(Morgan Cloud, Professor of Law, Emory University School of Law)
