Fundamentals of Texas Trial Practice is a trial advocacy book designed for Texas practitioners. It discusses the fundamental techniques and methodologies of effectively preparing and presenting a case in accordance with the Texas Rules of Evidence and Texas civil and criminal procedure. While Fundamentals of Texas Trial Practice is intended principally to serve as a tool for beginning practitioners, experienced trial lawyers are likely to find many key insights and suggestions that will increase their effectiveness as a result of Judge Barton s multifaceted perspective as Judge, Prosecutor, Professor and Trial Lawyer. The Fundamentals of Texas Trial Practice is comprehensive in that it covers trial preparation, making and responding to objections, jury selection, making an opening statement, conducting direct and cross-examination, impeaching and rehabilitating witnesses, offering and opposing exhibits, direct and cross-examination of expert witnesses, the court s charge to the jury, and closing arguments. As is true of a good trial lawyer, Fundamentals of Texas Trial Practice is brief and simple. Its coverage of the subjects of trial practice is succinct, direct and clear, and focuses on the fundamentals that are essential to being an effective trial lawyer. Each chapter contains cross-references to other chapters to enable the reader to perceive the progression of a trial and integrate its various parts into a coherent whole. At the end of each chapter is an extensive bibliography to relevant parts of leading treatises on trial advocacy. In sum, the Fundamentals of Texas Trial Practice is a valuable resource for both the novice and the seasoned veteran trail lawyer alike.
