Now in its fourth edition, NITA s best-selling text, Modern Trial Advocacy: Analysis and Practice, has set the standard for trial advocacy texts since 1993. All of NITA's renowned full trial programs use the text, as do prominent law schools nationwide. Steven Lubet guides the beginning advocate from developing a winning case theory through all phases of trial. He explains how to present a case as a story, and how to tell the story to the jury powerfully and persuasively.

Modern Trial Advocacy presents a realistic and contemporary approach to learning and developing trial advocacy skills. This book offers a sophisticated theory-driven approach to advocacy training that distinguishes it from other books in the field.

The fourth edition has been updated to include: an expanded section on the uses of theory, theme, and story frame; expanded discussion of witness preparation; new sections on developing story arcs in opening statements and final arguments; a new section on the persuasive value of inferences and cognitive theory; and expanded discussion of witness credibility variables, explaining how to bolster or undermine testimony.
