Criminal Trial Strategies - counsel's handbook on Criminal Law2022 Criminal Trial Strategies

A just outcome for accused persons and for victims of crime is the beacon of any fair society. Trial lawyers and judges are the defenders of liberty. There is no aspect of life where strategy is more important to a person than in a criminal trial. For the individuals involved, the stakes are as high as in a war. A single strategic error on the part of a prosecutor or criminal defence counsel can destroy the life and liberty of the innocent, as well as their families and friends. And because of precedence, it can also affect an infinite number of citizens later. Trying a criminal case is therefore among the most stressful work that can be undertaken.

In law, every word is important. But some words are more important. Developing an effective trial strategy means knowing which words are the most important. This book will help you cut through the fluff. If you read it and understand it, you will be better equipped to navigate through complicated issues to a successful outcome.

Ineffective trial counsel with poor strategy will focus on irrelevant details. Effective trial counsel must stay focused on the most important facts. The goal is that at the end of the trial, the effective counsel has painted a clear picture that persuades a judge or jury to accept it and rely upon it for its decision.

This is a powerful book. It is as useful for criminal law students as it is for seasoned trial lawyers and judges.
