Winning at Trial uses innovative techniques to teach students and experienced lawyers alike the art of presenting a clear and compelling case in order to win at trial. These skills are gained first by observing then by doing, and in Winning at Trial the reader is enabled to do just that by analyzing transcripts and viewing almost four hours of footage from the O. J. Simpson trial and a focus group deliberating a civil trial. This book is one of the most comprehensive trial advocacy resources published in recent years. Students, lawyers, judges, and librarians alike will benefit from Read's wisdom. Winner of the international Association for Continuing Legal Education (ACLEA) 2008 Award for Professional Excellence.

About the Author:

Shane Read is a graduate of Yale University and the University of Texas School of Law. He began his legal career in 1989 at Akin Gump in Dallas, Texas, before joining the U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington, D.C. from 1992-1998. Since 1998, he has worked at the U.S. Attorney s Office in Dallas. He has been lead counsel on countless civil and criminal trials over the past eighteen years. In addition, he has served as lead counsel for numerous oral arguments before appellate courts. He has also held a wide variety of teaching positions during his career. He is currently an adjunct professor at Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law. Here he has taught Trial Advocacy, coached mock trial teams, and currently is teaching a unique seminar on trial strategies. He has also taught both new and experienced lawyers at NITAs seminars on trial skills and at the Department of Justice's National Advocacy Center.

Review:

Shane Read has written an excellent book that will be most helpful to the bench and bar for many years to come. I wish he had produced this gem 50 years ago so I could have used it when I was a trial lawyer. It would have also made easier my job as a trial judge if the attorneys had the benefit of Winning at Trial when preparing their cases. Shane draws upon his unique experiences as a civil trial lawyer, prosecutor and law professor to set forth in an original and practical way the skills needed to win in the courtroom. --Robert F. Chapman, former U.S. District Judge, retired U.S. Circuit Judge

Shane Read takes a fresh view of the art of persuasion at trial and challenges some of the basic assumptions about what is effective advocacy. Mr. Read s text is a refreshing and thought-provoking analysis that is bound to change the thinking of lawyers and teachers about the art of trial advocacy. The book contains analysis of transcripts of the Timothy McVeigh trial and includes over three hours of video (DVD) of the Simpson trial. --Frederick C. Moss, Assoc. Prof. of Law, Dedman School of Law

Shane Read takes the mystery out of learning trial skills in this unique book, sure to revolutionize the way trial skills are taught. . . . In Winning at Trial, readers study actual trials where techniques are either executed at such a high level of excellence or so badly demonstrated that those skills needed to master winning techniques will never be forgotten. --Eric H. Holder, Jr., former U.S. Deputy Attorney General
