This book builds upon the success of earlier editions, providing a structure that is scalable regardless of the type of case an advocate finds themselves confronting. The focus on case analysis remains a strong point in the 3rd edition, with additional online resources included to truly immerse the student in every fundamental advocacy skill discussed in the text. Students can enter the text where they see fit, focusing immediately upon the specific skill they wish to develop. The book is written holistically, with a commitment to the development of core competencies and advocacy skills interwoven throughout the text. This allows the advocate using the text to learn fundamentals and overarching concepts at the same time - greatly increasing their initial understanding and depth of learning. This book is fundamentally different from any other advocacy book on the shelves today, and it is a difference that matters. The commitment to structure has resulted in an approach that unlocks the legal storyteller within every advocate studying the text. They are set free to tell stories that matter, ask questions that are necessary, and deliver arguments that move others, the essence of advocacy.
