Summary
good lawyers have an ability to tell stories. Whether they are arguing a murder case or a complex financial securities case, they can capably explain a chain of events to judges and juries so that they understand them. The best lawyers are also able to construct narratives that have an emotional impact on their intended audiences. But what is a narrative, and how can lawyers go about constructing one? How does one transform a cold presentation of facts into a seamless story that clearly and compellingly takes readers not only from point A to point B, but also to points C, D, and E as well? In Storytelling for Lawyers, Philip N. Meyer explains how. Ideal for legal practitioners, teachers, law students, and even interdisciplinary academics, the book offers a comprehensive explanation of the central role of narrative in litigation. Storytelling for Lawyers offers a narrative tool kit that supplements the analytical skills traditionally emphasized in law school as well as practical tips for practicing attorneys that will help them craft their own legal stories.
