9781556815317: Theater Tips and Strategies for Jury Trials

Be more persuasive in the courtroom by adapting techniques used in the theater. When used correctly these methods are invisible--yet they motivate jurors to argue for your side effectively and tenaciously.

About the Author:

David Ball, PhD., a nationally known jury consultant and trial skills trainer, is a leading authority on adapting audience persuasion techniques from theater and film to in-court use. Trained in communications, theater, and film, his credits as a director, producer, and playwright include the Guthrie Theater, Broadway and off-Broadway, Carnegie Mellon University, and Duke University, where he chaired Drama.

He has taught law students at Duke, the universities of North Carolina, Minnesota, and Pittsburgh, and Campbell University as Adjunct Professor of Law. He writes for a variety of law publications, and his NITA book Theater Tips and Strategies for Jury Trials is a national best-seller.

Review:

"I am a young attorney in Burlington, Iowa, and I had only tried six cases before reading Theater Tips and Strategies for Jury Trials. On my seventh trial I tried a dramshop case, which several attorneys told me that I could not win. In fact, defense counsel refused to even offer a settlement because they were so sure of victory. The jury returned a verdit of $1.25 million. I would not have been able to get this kind of verdict without having read David Ball's book. I learned more about how to try a case in one reading of Mr. Ball's book than I would have learned in a lifetime of trials." -- Attorney John M. Loeschen, Burlington, Iowa

"In well-organized chapters on trial's characters, rehersal techniques, audience, props, plot, and point of view, Ball's book provides useful advice to both novice and experienced 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 courtrooms." -- Lawyers Weekly USA

"Packed with useful information and good techniques that will make you a better communicator and a more effective advocate." -- Professor James W. McElhaney, Case Western Reserve Law School, Cleveland, Ohio

"This is the single best book of this type I have seen in 33 years. It should, in my view, form the basis for most of our training. I encourage all of you to read, study and practice the techniques." -- Attorney Fred H. Bartlit, Jr. Chicago, Illinois
