Components of a Trial

In this In Practice podcast, I talk about the components of a trial, with a special focus on how to judge how well an attorney is performing in any given segment of the trial. Similarly, for attorneys tuning in, you could use the information in this podcast as a refresher on how to be a more effective trial advocate. I go over the hallmarks of effective and ineffective advocacy at the stages of: jury selection, opening statement, direct examination, cross examination, and closing argument.
