Publisher's Summary

Two outstanding Texas trial lawyers - one now an equally respected district judge - have written On the Jury Trial, a “must-have” reference for any trial lawyer aspiring to excellence or seeking to maintain it. Topics include voir dire, opening statement, preparing witnesses, cross examination, using exhibits, closing argument, jury research, and more, with excellent examples and “dos and don’ts” provided throughout. Think of this audiobook as the senior law partner’s memo to associates on how to really try a case.

Looking for fly-on-the-wall insight into world-class trial preparation and strategy? Here it is. A behind-the-scenes tour of the inner workings of the judicial process? This audiobook has you covered. Its combination of advice, illustration, and commentary is every bit as valuable as it is unique. Every litigator should have this audiobook downloaded, no matter the state in which they practice.

great book.

there are lots of practical tips that can be applied immediately. I especially like the section on preparing your witness for deposition, but the whole book is excellent.

Seems good but the robo voice is piercing.

Content is great but something with the voice or recording quality just goes right through me. I can’t listen to it for 8 hours. I just can’t.
