The third Australian edition of Fundamentals of Trial Technique continues to present readers with a comprehensive approach to trial preparation and strategy. Focusing on the knowledge and skills of good persuasive advocacy, this text enables an advocate to approach a trial knowing what to do, how to do it, and why it needs to be done. Adapted from the eighth American edition of Mauet's Trial Techniques, this new Australian edition has been fully revised. It includes a more comprehensive analysis of jury selection in Chapter 2, and an entirely new Chapter 9 on trial ethics and courtroom etiquette. It addresses each stage of a trial, including jury selection and persuasion, the opening address, examination-in-chief, and the cross-examination of witnesses. It also covers closing arguments, the entry of exhibits, making objections, and trial ethics and etiquette. Fundamentals of Trial Technique, 3rd Australian edition, is a highly practical, effective guide to advocacy practice in Australian courts. It is essential reading for those who want to improve their advocacy skills.
