Abstract:
Trial advocacy is an important aspect of our legal system, and is critical for ensuring a fair trial. This dissertation considers the recommended trial advocacy techniques for attorney demeanor, verbal communications, paralinguistic communications, kinesic communication, attorney-client relationships, and storytelling in light of the available science. First, each chapter reviews the trial strategies recommended by trial commentators. Next, each chapter explores scientific research relevant to the advocacy recommendations by legal commentators and identifies the limitations in their recommendations. In addition, research-based advocacy techniques are suggested for improving trial advocacy.
