Proud that Aspen Publishing will soon be launching Pretrial Advocacy: Planning, Analysis and Strategy 6th Edition which I co-authored with Marilyn Berger and John Mitchell.  The above image shows what the cover will look like. New to this edition are the following:

  • Comprehensive organizing system for pretrial and trial
  • New material on preparing a witness for trial
  • Updated coverage of electronically stored information (ESI) and e-discovery practice
  • Advancements in the use of technology to create persuasive visuals for litigation
  • COVID impact on pretrial practice with respect to 
    • Conducting and defending depositions online
    • Mediation by videoconference
    • Greater us of written motions and responses

This book is one of the reasons, besides teaching at Seattle University Law School, that I haven’t blogged for a while. Probably won’t get much blogging done in the near future because we are working on the 5th edition of Trial Advocacy.
