Ohlbaum on Evidence-Advocacy July 25

Professor Edward D. Ohlbaum will dissect, discuss and demonstrate how evidence and advocacy interface at a Thursday, July 25 CLE program. The relationship between evidence and trial advocacy enables you, as an advocate, to demonstrate how an evidentiary principle makes your presentation more believable. It also permits you to make an opponent pay a price for having abused or disregarded the relationship.

Because the law of evidence is analytically integrated with the law of trial advocacy, the respective foundations of evidentiary rules provide the keys to persuasion. Trial lawyers who articulate these evidentiary principles in their questions and speeches become more persuasive advocates simply because many of the principles on which the rules of evidence are based are the same principles that govern persuasive courtroom performance.
