Présentation de l'éditeur

Good lawyers have an ability to tell stories. Whether they are arguing a murder case or a complex financial securities case, they can capably explain a chain of events to judges and juries so that they understand them. The best lawyers are also able to construct narratives that have an emotional impact on their intended audiences. But what is a narrative, and how can lawyers go about constructing one? How does one transform a cold presentation of facts into a seamless story that clearly and compellingly takes readers not only from point A to point B, but to points C, D, E, F, and G as well? In Storytelling for Lawyers, Phil Meyer explains how. He begins with a pragmatic theory of the narrative foundations of litigation practice and then applies it to a range of practical illustrative examples: briefs, judicial opinions and oral arguments. Intended for legal practitioners, teachers, law students, and even interdisciplinary academics, the book offers a basic yet comprehensive explanation of the central role of narrative in litigation. The book also offers a narrative tool kit that supplements the analytical skills traditionally emphasized in law school as well as practical tips for practicing attorneys that will help them craft their own legal stories.

Biographie de l'auteur

Philip N. Meyer is Professor of Law at Vermont Law School.

Much needed guide to narration in law practice 10 février 2014
Par asimow@law.stanford,.edu - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Meyer’s “Storytelling for Lawyers” is an important contribution to the literature on narration in law practice. We know that successful courtroom rhetoric can best be viewed through the prism of storytelling. But the literature does not contain a practical and detailed analysis of the elements of narration as used in law practice—that is, plotting, characterization, point of view, style, and settings in place and time. Meyer’s book fills this gap. It is blessedly free of jargon and full of practical examples of good legal storytelling. But the importance of this book goes well beyond providing practical assistance to litigators. It serves as a much-needed introduction to the principles of narration for teachers and students of literature, creative writing, and popular culture, who have lacked a readable introductory guide to the elements of successful storytelling.

lawyers as creative artists 25 mars 2014
Par John Denvir - Publié sur
Format: Broché
It is a rare book that not only makes important theoretical insights, but also provides helpful practical advice, but that is exactly what Phil Meyer has accomplished. His discussion of Gerry Spence's final argument in the Karen Silkwood case is itself worth the price of admission. Meyer leaves the old law school paradigm of arguing "rule and facts" far behind as he shows how the best lawyers are creative artists of the first magnitude. He also shows how practicing lawyers can use similar narrative strategies to their clients' benefit, Both lawyers and non-lawyers will find this book a good read..

Interesting book 20 mars 2014

I am not a lawyer, nor a writer, but rather a reader. I found the correlation of legal storytelling with sceenplay, literary narrative quite interesting. Legal trials are theater.

Great and Important Book 1 mai 2014
Par A Reader - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
All litigaotors would benefit from reading this book. There is compelling evidence that the root of persuasion is storytelling and this book covers those aspects of storytelling that are most important for lawyers. The book is well-written, fun to read and full of real-life examples of persuasive lawyering. It is a must-read for anyone wanting to take their trial work to the next level.

Recommended for All Lawyers 7 mai 2014
Par David R. Papke - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Meyer proves his initial point that much of what lawyers do is storytelling, and he achieves his goal of providing a primer on narrative theory for lawyer-storytellers. The book is sophisticated but written in an engaging way using non-technical language. Examples from legal and literary works abound, and they range from courtroom arguments and appellate briefs on the one hand to an essay by Joan Didion and Vonnegut's "Slaughterhouse Five" on the other. Meyer's favorite stories are found in Hollywood movies, and although he seems unaware of the accomplishment,Meyer provides fresh interpretations of such movies as "HIgh Noon" and"Jaws." I strongly recommend "Storytelling for Lawyers" for all law students, lawyers, and judges.
