    Winning at Trial

    Winning at Trial uses innovative techniques to teach law students the art of presenting a clear and compelling case in order to win at trial. The book teaches courtroom skills by analyzing transcripts of the O.J. Simpson and Oklahoma City bombing trials. The book includes four hours of video from the Simpson trial contained on two DVDs.

    Winner of Highest Honor Assoc. for Continuing Legal Education


    “Shane Read has written an excellent book that will be most helpful to the bench and bar for many years to come. I wish he had produced this gem 50 years ago so I could have used it when I was a trial lawyer. It would have also made easier my job as a trial judge if the attorneys had the benefit of Winning at Trial when preparing their cases. Shane draws upon his unique experiences as a civil trial lawyer, prosecutor and law professor to set forth in an original and practical way the skills needed to win in the courtroom.”
    – Robert F. Chapman, former U.S. District Judge, retired U.S. Circuit Judge

    “Shane Read takes the mystery out of learning trial skills in this unique book, sure to revolutionize the way trial skills are taught . . . . In Winning at Trial, readers study actual trials where techniques are either executed at such a high level of excellence or so badly demonstrated that those skills needed to master winning techniques will never be forgotten.”
    – Eric H. Holder, Jr., former U.S. Attorney General

    “Shane Read takes a fresh view of the art of persuasion at trial and challenges some of the basic assumptions about what is effective advocacy. Mr. Read’s text is a refreshing and thought-provoking analysis that is bound to change the thinking of lawyers and teachers about the art of trial advocacy. The book contains analysis of transcripts of the Oklahoma City bombing trial and includes over three hours of video (DVD) of the O.J. Simpson trial.”
    – Frederick C. Moss, Assoc. Prof. of Law, Dedman School of Law
