Recommended Titles and Treatises
To help provide access to the Texas State Law Library's legal resources, the reference librarians have selected the most noteworthy titles in our collection and arranged them here by subject. The titles listed for each subject feature a brief summary written by a reference librarian, and each subject's titles are divided into those that are specific to Texas law and those that aren't.

So much of winning a case is at the pre-trial stage. This updated 2nd edition of "Effective Depositions" ensures you will go into depositions well prepared whether you are taking a deposition or defending a witness. This extensive title begins by explaining how to procedurally prepare for a deposition, how to secure a witness's attendance, and how to properly prepare a witness (including many special or non-standard situations). It also goes through the actual deposition process before discussing how to manage depositions once they've been taken and how to use them at trial.
