Today's jurors are bombarded with media images of handsome and sexy lawyers, heroically solving crimes and winning in the courtroom. In reality, the courtroom is nothing like TV's "win in a 60-minute episode" format, but your performance can be just as appealing, passionate, and valiant.
From David Ball's theatrical background comes Theater Tips and Strategies for Jury Trials, a practical guide to improve your performance in the courtroom. Research shows that how we say something is equally, if not more, important as what we say. This book provides you with tips on focus groups as well as complete trial guidance, from voir dire, openings, testimony, and closing statements. Ball leads you through voice projection and body placement, teaching you how to look and talk naturally. He continues with instruction of how to persuade and motivate jurors by teaching skills on building and telling stories, improvisation for unexpected turns in your trial, and directing your cast of witnesses.
