North Carolina Civil Trial Practice is North Carolina's only and leading practitioner treatise on civil trial practice and procedure (with application of the N.C. Rules of Evidence). There are a number of books for practitioners in North Carolina in various, distinct subjects (e.g. in torts, workers' compensation, real property law, family law, North Carolina corporations, North Carolina evidence, Employment Law and North Carolina Criminal Procedure). However, there is currently no civil trial practice book available in North Carolina; and this work fills that gap and is designed to be used by all civil trial lawyers in North Carolina, whether plaintiff or defense-oriented.
North Carolina Civil Trial Practice comprehensively covers (1) the procedural, and (2) substantive law of, and (3) practice techniques for the trial of any North Carolina civil case -- from pre-trial procedure, mediation, and all stages of a trial (jury selection, open statement, direct and cross-examination, the jury charge conference, and closing argument). In addition, the book covers a detailed application of the North Carolina Rules of Evidence as they relate to the foregoing and to making objections and offers of proof, conducting direct and cross-examinations (including impeachment and rebuttal), introducing exhibits, and preserving the record for appeal. No current book in North Carolina addresses these matters. The book is thus distinct from any other North Carolina practitioner treatise, and is designed (1) as the definitive resource for civil practitioners preparing for any trial (bench trial or jury trial in any civil proceeding ) and (2) for ready use in court when counsel needs to quickly find out how to introduce a particular matter or item of evidence at trial or otherwise how to deal with any other matter occurring at trial. In sum, North Carolina Civil Trial Practice is the standard "bible" for all civil trial practitioners.
