We continue to feature the handy Young Advocates Series with The Civil Courtroom: Professionalism to Build Rapport written by John Hollander and published by Irwin Law. These short handbooks are light enough for a beach read, but full of practical advice on building the key skills that every legal professional needs.
The series is also available electronically through the Courthouse Library subscription to vLex.
Demonstrating professionalism is one of the most important courtroom skills for civil litigators. A collateral benefit of this skill is learning to establish rapport with the people in the courtroom, including decision makers, opposing counsel, clients, and witnesses. This book will help lawyers recognize and evaluate their courtroom skills, and develop the techniques to improve these skills.
