Anatomy of a Trial. Volume V, Trying Cases to Win. Description (3900 characters maximum): Originally published: New York: Aspen Publishers, 1999. Reprinted 2013 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. xviii, 584 pp. The trial process is the sum of its parts-opening argument, direct and cross examination, and summation. In Trying Cases to Win, nationally known trial lawyer Herbert J. Stern provides an overall blueprint for conduct in the courtroom as he guides the reader through each of these segments. Rather than a collection of anecdotal war stories from various trials, Stern outlines the nuts and bolts of the right-and wrong-approach, processes and strategies for every component needed for trial success. Each volume is available separately. In this volume, Anatomy of a Trial, Stern and his co-author, Stephen A. Saltzburg, bring the principles of the other volumes in the Trying Cases to Win series into action. They offer a line-by-line review of all of the parts of a trial while looking at the importance of emotion in the decision process and its relationship to the facts presented. This detailed analysis, from the viewpoints of the attorney and the jury, demonstrates good and bad advocacy in every stage of the trial. Contents: 1. Opening Instructions; 2.
