Anatomy of a trial: a handbook for young lawyers

by Paul Sandler. American Bar Association. 2nd edition. 2014.
516 pages.

Many young lawyers beginning their careers have an excellent grasp of litigation theory but lack the real-world experience of actual trials. This volume from Paul Mark Sandler looks at each stage of two real trials (one criminal, one civil) and gives advice and strategies for success. Learning points are presented at the end of each chapter to distill the text into the main ideas to remember at each stage of a trial. Appendices contain the text of the opening statements and closing arguments from the cases examined.
