Authors David M. Malone and Warren S. Radler show trial lawyers that persuasive jury opening statements and closing arguments require imagination, storytelling skills, and a thorough knowledge of legal and ethical rules in their third edition of Jury Speech Rules: The Art of Ethical Persuasion. By using famous historical cases and many useful examples, they are able to demonstrate when things go wrong vs. when they are done right.
This book is broken down into three chapters which demonstrate the importance of opening statements, closing arguments, and ethics. By using real-life examples, the authors are able to engage readers with cases they may be familiar with and teach them how to establish a theme, present a theory, and become a storyteller.
