Voir Dire and Opening Argument. Volume I, Trying Cases to Win. Description (3900 characters maximum): Originally published: New York: Aspen Publishers, 1991. Reprinted 2013 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. xv, 685 pp. The trial process is the sum of its parts-opening argument, direct and cross examination, and summation. In Trying Cases to Win, nationally known trial lawyer Herbert J. Stern provides an overall blueprint for conduct in the courtroom as he guides the reader through each of these segments. Rather than a collection of anecdotal war stories from various trials, Stern outlines the nuts and bolts of the right-and wrong-approach, processes and strategies for every component needed for trial success. Each volume is also available separately.

In this volume, Voir Dire and Opening Argument, Stern describes tactics for the voir dire process and the construction and delivery of a successful opening to lay the foundation for the overall argument.

From the Publisher:

Volume I discusses the theories and philosophies of litigating cases in direct and cross examination. Volume II implements these methods of conducting direct examination in order to assure a flawless presentation of the case. The author uses trial transcripts from some of the greatest trial lawyers of the past century to illustrate these techniques. Volume III shows the attorney how to argue the case through opposition witnesses, convert the information provided on direct examination to the benefit of the cross examiner's case and limit the direct testimony so it is not detrimental. Also incorporates actual case excerpts and explanations of the techniques. Volume IV defines the ``real'' purpose of summation, outlining the limitations and using actual case studies. Instructs attorneys to teach jurors how to argue their position for them against adversaries in the jury room.
