The Mauet Trial Practice Library in Lois Law

We have recently acquired the Mauet Trial Practice Library, an electronic collection of Thomas Mauet's best known trial treatises and practice guides available via Lois Law (under Treatise Library < Mauet Trial Practice Library).  Resources in this collection include:

Trial Techniques breaks the trial process down into its critical components and includes examples illustrating strategies for opening statements, jury selection, direct- and cross-examination, exhibits, objections, and more.

Trials: Strategy, Skills, and the New Powers of Persuasion covers trial theory and practice, emphasizing the jurors’ perspective, the increased necessity of an effective opening statement, and the importance now given to visual presentation at trial. 

Trial Evidence takes the point of view of the trial judge; authors Mauet and Wolfson explore the methods, strategies, and tactics of trial evidence through an analytical approach that reveals how judges and trial lawyers think about evidentiary rules—particularly the Federal Rules of Evidence.

PreTrial presents a methodology for trial preparation, and reviews the procedural rules and thought processes a litigator should utilize before and during each stage of the process.
