Writing Law and Lawyers

November 4, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm


How many times does a witness break down on the stand and confess to the murder? Approaching zero. Trial scenes in novels often produce groaning inaccuracies that jerk readers right out of the fictional world authors carefully created. In this Research for Writers Seminar led by an experienced prosecutor and former criminal law professor, (That’s me!) participants examine the trial process from beginning to end. Topics covered include: phases of the trial; roles of judge, prosecutor, and defense counsel; what jurors see and hear, types of evidence and its presentation; and examining and cross-examining witnesses. After a presentation, ample time will be available for questions and answers. All authors and emerging writers are welcome.
