Nathan Veldhuis’ reviews The Art and Science of Mastering the Jury Trial

“The Art and Science of Mastering the Jury Trial” written by Judge Samuel Johnston and Irv Cantor and recently published by The Virginia Trial Lawyers Foundation is a valuable tool for any lawyer regardless of his or her level of experience.

The book tracks the life of a jury trial from the moment a potential client appears at a lawyer’s office through post-trial motions. The authors’ presentation is unique in that it appeals to both new lawyers and seasoned lawyers alike. Moments in the book are plainly intended to speak to a less experienced audience, but at the same time manage to impart pearls of wisdom to the more experienced audience.

“The fact that an employee has a mental disability or served in the military does not mean you cannot take appropriate disciplinary action when dealing with misconduct. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) Enforcement Guidance on the Americans with Disabilities Act and Psychiatric Disabilities specifically states that employers may discipline employees with mental disabilities for violating workplace conduct standards even if the misconduct is caused by a disability.”
