A classic legal text, Mark Sandler's "Anatomy of a Trial" reveals the secrets of effective courtroom advocacy like no other legal "how-to." Centered on the real world criminal trial of a political fundraiser, the book takes readers from voir dire to verdict, offering candid, no-nonsense pointers on how to try fiercely contested cases.
Arising from a star-studded fundraiser in Los Angeles, the case in question highlighted the intersection of Washington politics, campaign finance, and Hollywood celebrity. In Sandler's hands, the trial serves as a laboratory in which to discover essential lessons about litigation. With examples from the transcript, he illustrates timeless strategies for opening statements, witness examinations, and closing arguments.
Join Mr. Sandler and distinguished members of the bench and faculty who will offer invaluable insights about persuasion and technique.
