"In well-organized chapters on the trial's characters, rehearsal techniques, audience, props, plot, & point of view, Ball's book provides useful advice to novice & experience legal actors. "Even those who never try a jury case will learn a lot about audience persuasion which is a crucial skill in many theaters of a lawyer's life besides producer, theater professor & trial consultant has woven together a highly readable compendium of "how to's" & "how not to's" for trial lawyers. I highly recommend this book for trial attorneys with limited experience. Even seasoned trial attorneys will find Mr. Ball's book a valuable mini-refresher course. The book shows trial lawyers how to use concepts from theater to persuade & motivate. After all, there is no finer stage than the courtroom & no In this revised & expanded second edition, Ball provides practical guidance for voir dire, openings & closings, testimony, & focus groups. He describes what practitioners can learn from actors about their manner, voice projection, & behavior. He tells how to grab the jury from the beginning just as a good movie opening captures the audience. He details the preparation of your "cast" of witnesses so they testify clearly, credibly, & memorably. And he offers advice on telling your story so that it commands attention & motivates jurors to argue for your side.
