“an excerpt from Lawyers, Liars, and Storytellers by Jonathan Shapiro”

This excerpt, posted by the American Bar Association, discusses the use of the rhetorical appeals in legal arguments. Not gonna lie, I was happy to see that it agreed with my own post on knowing your method of persuasion, which you can find here.

For more info on the book, which Shapiro says aims to show you “how to convey information in a cogent, persuasive way to decision-makers who make the final call” through his reflections as well as “portions of famous real-life court transcripts and television scripts,” check out his blog here.
