A Guide to Trial Practice and Procedure

By Dan Small

Thousands of solo and small firm lawyers took advantage of the expert guidance and the numerous procedures, forms, checklists, and charts found in the best-selling first edition of Going to Trial from the American Bar Association.

This classic reference has been completely updated and revised. Going to Trial, Second Edition provides accessible and proven advice on how you can better prepare for a trial. And now this practical guide includes a diskette with the book’s many valuable forms, checklists, and worksheets.

Each step of the trial procedure is covered, in separate chapters, from the first interview with the client to closing argument. The updated Going to Trial, Second Edition also includes important new issues in trial preparation, including the growing impact of technology on every phase of litigation.

Chapters include information about technology and litigation, motion practice, settlements, trial preparation, voir dire and jury selection, opening statements, direct and cross-examination, rebuttal and post-trial motions, jury instructions, and closing arguments.

Going to Trial, Second Edition is for the beginning and experienced litigator. It helps make the basics of the process easier to master so you can concentrate more on each particular case and client.
