9780131058835: Anatomy of Cross-Examination

Cross-examination is the most exciting and anxiety-provoking time in every trial. This book is a practical guide that provides an analytical explanation of successful cross-examination that should greatly alleviate many new lawyers' anxiety.

Cross-examination is more than simply questioning a witness. It should be used to persuade the jury and obtain evidence for your final argument. However, this is not as easy as it sounds. This is a difficult skill that must be learned by all successful litigators.

This book offers 67 principles that every trial lawyer needs to know, including:

  • Closing arguments should be formulated at the beginning of the case (not at the end)
  • Know what you seek to accomplish in your cross-examination
  • Respond to a harmful answer by immediately asking another question
  • Cross-examination should not be conducted from written questions
  • Every witness should be damaged or neutralized on cross-examination

"Every trial lawyer, both novice and expert, will need this essential work." - E. Donald Shapiro, former Dean and Joseph Distinguished Professor of Law at New York Law School
