Bodiford's Cross Examination in a Nutshell

Regular price $47.00


"My focus in Cross Examination in a Nutshell are the 5 Ts - THEMES,  TOPICS, TARGET FACTS, TONE, and TEMPO. I'll get you away from lists of boring questions, and to using a fluid and flexible method that lets you effectively tell your story through the other side's witness. Along the way, you'll develop "advocacy muscle memory" (leading and limiting), evidentiary objections to control the substance, the witness, and opposing counsel - and tools to control "those" witnesses!" ~ Joe Bodiford

Cross Examination in a Nutshell is a new approach to an age-old skill.  Focusing on incorporating storytelling and persuasion, it presents techniques for preparing, structuring, and delivering effective cross examinations in every setting. Cross Examination in a Nutshell departs from the old ways, and presents a new thought process for making cross examination as much a part of telling your story as is opening and closing arguments. The techniques for controlling the narrative, the witness, and your opponent are perfect for every advocate, from the law student to the most seasoned practitioner.
