'Painstaking preparation means that luck will run your way'. Advocacy explains how to win cases in court. Focusing on the techniques and methods of successful advocates, David Ross QC shows how to prepare a case for court. Written in simple, clear language he gives the benefit of his many years of local and international experience as he describes • how to hold a court's attention • how to start and stop a witness • how to cross-examine all types of people, from liars to experts • the methods of taking objections to questions • how to address a jury • how to follow etiquette and behave ethically • how to win impossible cases. All the principles of advocacy are explained, from the striking start to knowledge of human affairs, and Advocacy is rich with examples taken from real cases.

In The Press

'The virtues of the book are its clarity and simplicity. … The book is a straightforward first introduction to advocacy, and it fulfils its function very well. It provides a firm foundation and explanation of basic techniques and practical common sense from which the young advocate will be able to build and add nuance and shape from his or her own experience.' The Cambridge Law Journal
