Top Customer Reviews
It's full of tiny little things which you, as an advocate, should know and remember.
Do not let the page count decieve, the book is highly accessable, does not waste space and is written wholely in bulletpoint form.
This can also function as a quick reference to all topics covered in depth by Richard du Cann's 'Art of the Advocate'.
College of Law
Iain Morley QC shares some good tips in relation to cross examination and opening and closing speeches etc, but the best thing is the way the book is written, it is written as if he is speaking to you, very easy to pick up the night before a trial and remind yourself of the mistakes not to make!
A must buy for any student, trainee, pupil or advocate!
The premise is to give the reader a series of short chapters which can be read and re read quickly and which give basic principles applicable to being very good, good or at least competent in Court.
