Since its original release in 2006, it has helped lawyers throughout the country win six-, seven-, and eight-; figure verdicts in cases with difficult liability. The book is the basis of an AAJ Trial College, the topic of many CLE lectures by the country’s leading lawyers, and is taught in trial advocacy classes at law schools. The authors have now honed this groundbreaking work in this second edition. In addition to revisions throughout the book clarifying concepts in the first edition, Friedman and Malone have added six new chapters and three appendices. They cover the differences between rules and principles, how to troubleshoot your rules, and how to fit Rules of the Road techniques into your case themes. They discuss how to use rules earlier in the case, through motions in limine, and in voir dire. They include samples of rules from a variety of types of cases, including medical malpractice, product liability, insurance claims practice cases, and many more.
