The 2nd edition of the AAI Advocacy Manual is now available.  This second edition is improved by a number of additions.
Developing a case theory is a challenging but critical analytical task for every advocate in every case. The chapter on Preparation has some helpful suggested steps in developing the case theory. There is a new chapter on Expert Evidence which provides a useful conceptual and practical approach to this more difficult part of the advocates work. It provides a guide to conferencing with experts and dealing with their evidence in court. There is a much enlarged chapter on Evidence in Action with special emphasis on the Uniform Evidence Act. There is a new chapter on Appellate Advocacy which has some important practical guidance and builds on the chapter on Argument.
