The Art of the Advocate. Richard Du Cann Reviews
Great read for the layman and any foreign attorney interested in British trial advocacy, although a bit dry in places. Redundant for anyone who is a trial attorney in a common law jurisdiction.
It is a great book. Recommended reading for law students and lawyers alike. At the back of the book, it says: Caught in the vice of tradition and precedent, advocates pursue their calling, and their prey, in a manner that has not basically changed for 200 years. And this book aids us in understanding the history and what it takes to have a successful (caveat: Du Cann would cringe at this) career as a barrister. Nevertheless, it would make one be a better advocate for your client's cause.
Excellent stuff, beautifully written.
Really good, interesting things on cross-examination, sounds really difficult
