Tennessee Law of Civil Trial has been printed and is now available for purchase.
The 500+ page book is largely a discussion of the law of trying civil cases in Tennessee – the law of scheduling orders, pretrial conferences, jury selection, opening statement and closing arguments, use of depositions at trial, and more.
The book does touch on some aspects of the law of evidence, but candidly the book largely leaves that topic to other texts. Instead, this book is designed to be a reference guide that judges and lawyers can turn to for a ready reference on the substantive law of trial.
Also included is a chanter of 75 of my tips on preparing cases for trial and related forms.
