Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury
Sometimes the most crucial part of a criminal trial is the closing argument. Michael S. Lief, Ben Bycel and H. Mitchell Caldwell have assembled ten of the 20th century’s most impressive closing arguments in Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury. Each unforgettable argument is accompanied by a brief biography of the lawyer and an editor’s analysis of the argument. Key trial participants also comment upon some passages. Coverage includes the Nuremberg Trials, the Silkwood case and California v. Charles Manson.
