Modern Trial Advocacy Law School Edition presents a realistic and contemporary approach to learning and developing trial advocacy skills. Dedicated to the law student, the book contains a "Trial Basics" chapter, which discusses what happens in a trial and the role the advocate plays. According to Steven Lubet, an attorney must consider his or her duty to the client, the court, and the adversary for justice to prevail.
In the second edition, Lubet updates the book with a new chapter on the most recent revolution in trial advocacy: technology in the courtroom. "Electronic Visuals," the new chapter by Edward R. Stein, provides a useful and insightful introduction to technology in the courtroom, ranging from evidentiary issues to practical advice. The new edition also includes updates to Federal Rules 702 and 703.
