“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.
