Major contributors in the field summarize the state of the literature in numerous key areas of the behavioral sciences and law.

Distinctive features of this text include detailed coverage of admissibility and Daubert challenges, with unique chapters written by an eminently qualified judge and attorney; hundreds of helpful suggestions covering such topics as forensic evaluations, discovery, and the conduct of depositions and cross-examinations; and two chapters on the use of visuals to enhance communication and persuasiveness, including a unique chapter with over 125 model visuals for cases in psychology and law.

The Digital Transformation of Legal Persuasion and Judgment

Winner of a 2005 Gustavus Myers Outstanding Book Award (Honorable Mention) Americans fear crime, are rattled by race and avoid honest discussions of both. Anxiety, denial, miscommunication, and ignorance abound. Imaginary connections between minorities and crime become real, self-fulfilling prophecies and authentic links to race, class, gender and crime go unexplored. Katheryn Russell-Brown, author of the highly acclaimed The Color of Crime, makes her way through this intellectual minefield, determined to shed light on the most persistent and perplexing domestic policy issues. The author tackles a range of race and crime issues. From outdated research methods that perpetuate stereotypes about African Americans, women, and crime to the over hyped discourse about gangsta rap and law breaking, Russell-Brown challenges the conventional wisdom of criminology. Underground Codes delves into understudied topics such as victimization rates for Native Americans—among the highest of any racial group—and how racial profiling affects the day-to-day lives of people of color. Innovative, well-researched and meticulously documented, Underground Codes makes a case for greater public involvement in the debate over law enforcement—and our own language—that must be heard if we are to begin to have a productive national conversation about crime and race.

Win Your Case

How to Present, Persuade, and Prevail--Every Place, Every Time

Author: Gerry Spence

Publisher: Macmillan

ISBN: 9781429909013

Category: Law

Page: 304

View: 7006

Gerry Spence is perhaps America's most renowned and successful trial lawyer, a man known for his deep convictions and his powerful courtroom presentations when he argues on behalf of ordinary people. Frequently pitted against teams of lawyers thrown against him by major corporate or government interests, he has never lost a criminal case and has not lost a civil jury trial since l969. In Win Your Case, Spence shares a lifetime of experience teaching you how to win in any arena-the courtroom, the boardroom, the sales call, the salary review, the town council meeting-every venue where a case is to be made against adversaries who oppose the justice you seek. Relying on the successful courtroom methods he has developed over more than half a century, Spence shows both lawyers and laypersons how you can win your cases as he takes you step by step through the elements of a trial-from jury selection, the opening statement, the presentation of witnesses, their cross-examinations, and finally to the closing argument itself. Spence teaches you how to prepare yourselves for these wars. Then he leads you through the new, cutting-edge methods he uses in discovering the story in which you form the evidence into a compelling narrative, discover the point of view of the decision maker, anticipate and answer the counterarguments, and finally conclude the case with a winning final argument. To make a winning presentation, you are taught to prepare the power-person (the jury, the judge, the boss, the customer, the board) to hear your case. You are shown that your emotions, and theirs, are the source of your winning. You learn the power of your own fear, of honesty and caring and, yes, of love. You are instructed on how to role-play through the use of the psychodramatic technique, to both discover and tell the story of the case, and, at last, to pull it all together into the winning final argument. Whether you are presenting your case to a judge, a jury, a boss, a committee, or a customer, Win Your Case is an indispensable guide to success in every walk of life, in and out of the courtroom.

"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.
