The Devil’s Advocate, a best-selling advocacy manual in both the UK and the Commonwealth, brings a fresh approach to the Do’s and Don’ts of good advocacy. Written with humour and style, the title explains clear techniques, taking the reader through the practical application of advocacy step-by-step.
The Devil’s Advocate has quickly become the leading handbook and practical guide to advocacy in any adversarial courtroom, in any country, to be read and carried about by any advocate.
Iain Morley QC is twenty years call in well-known London criminal chambers, prosecuting and defending in the Crown Courts, including many high-profile serious crime cases. He has taught advocacy skills pro bono to the Inner Temple juniors, written much of the teaching materials, and taught the teachers – including Silks and Judges.
