What are the duties to court and client, and how do they affect the advocate's conduct? What sort of intelligence and what skills of presentation do they need? What gifts of language (if any) must they possess? What problems does the structure of examination, cross-examination and re-examination pose for a client's case? The author draws on three main cases, so that the reader becomes familiar with the detailed problems of advocates at each stage of their work. He also gives an analysis of the presentation of the "bottle on the shelf" evidence in the Peasenhall case.
