The Articulate Advocate is valuable for a range of readers, including mock trial students and coaches. Your mock trial arguments will improve dramatically with the tips and guidance you’ll find in this book. It’s not a book about what to say in the courtroom, but rather, how to say it persuasively so you win! It answers common questions, such as what do you do with your hands, how do you keep yourself from talking too quickly, how do you channel your adrenaline buzz, and more. Most importantly, this book will teach you techniques that will allow you to remember with confidence what to say to the judge, the jury, and the witnesses.
