Synopsis

The Devil's Advocate, a best-selling advocacy manual in both the UK and the Commonwealth, brings a fresh approach to the Do's and Don'ts of good advocacy. Written with humour and style, the title explains clear techniques, taking the reader through the practical application of advocacy step-by-step. The Devil's Advocate has quickly become the leading handbook and practical guide to advocacy in any adversarial courtroom, in any country, to be read and carried about by any advocate. Iain Morley QC is twenty years call in well-known London criminal chambers, prosecuting and defending in the Crown Courts, including many high-profile serious crime cases. He has taught advocacy skills pro bono to the Inner Temple juniors, written much of the teaching materials, and taught the teachers - including Silks and Judges. * Presents the leading book on advocacy, bridging the gap between reading about advocacy and how you actually do it* Written in a no-nonsense and engaging style to bring a fresh approach to studying advocacy * Explains the art of persuasiveness, how to make convincing speeches, and effective cross examination * Describes well-established techniques and exercises used in court for constantly improving questioning and witness control * Offers punchy advice and insightful comments on all of the necessary skills and processes involved in advocating * Uses examples throughout to illustrate key points and aids knowledge retention * Includes a new chapter on the International Criminal Tribunals which require an additional set of advocacy skills due to the dynamics thrown up, such as the need for simultaneous translations

Customer Reviews

I bought and read this book prior to a magistrates' court appearance. It was useful in that it informed me what to expect from my barrister and how to appear and present myself. I read this and several similar books for this same purpose and found them extremely useful. Not only was I rightfully acquitted but, upon reflection, I believe that I didn't put a foot wrong. I believe that this was largely because I had prepared myself by reading such books as this. Well worth the money.

GREAT FOR BAR SCHOOL AND SHOULD BE COMPULSORY READING FOR ALL COURT ADVOCATES An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Well, he’s done it again with this superb third expanded version and, at double the length (but not cost) the book reminds us all how brilliant Sweet & Maxwell are at spotting and producing these special legal friends for the jobbing advocate. And how advocacy has changed! It is 10 years since the birth of Iain’s work which took many of us by storm for its originality. At the time I wrote that it showed one how to be seriously good in Court taking the author’s original subtitle. And it remains the book of my dreams and a Titanic of the advocacy world (and you can see what film I was watching at the time) because the advice given avoids all the ice bergs and glacial stares from the Bench! The little book is bigger now at over 400 pages but still modestly sized and very easy to read and digest with plenty of space for you to add your own personal tips about advocacy style. Iain’s writing style, enthusiasm and approach continues to bridge the gap between reading about the art of advocacy and actually how you do it in a court room. I have revised my view about the warm welcome I gave the original edition just to say on reflection that it should be in every wig box and not just that of the white wig! Thank you Iain and keep up the good work.
