This book introduces students to trial preparation, motion practice, jury selection, the trial process, preparation of the jury charge, jury argument, jury deliberations, verdict, instructed verdicts, judgments, and post-trial motions. The text also devotes a chapter to the special problems of non-jury trials. The authors have expanded their coverage of the difficult issue of finality of judgments, and included thorough treatment of original and appellate proceedings in the courts of appeal and in the Texas Supreme Court. This edition addresses recent statutory changes enlarging Texas Supreme Court discretionary jurisdiction as well as jurisdiction of appellate courts over original proceedings.

The book uses Notes to provide supplementary information as well as discussion questions designed to probe understanding of the material and the policy issues. Most sections of the book also contain Practice Exercises so that you can test your ability to apply the rules. Finally, a number of chapters are followed by an appendix containing actual Texas bar examination questions, which should be helpful both in learning about practice and in preparing you for the Texas Procedure and Evidence portion of the bar exam.
