This volume of the ABA Classics Series is The Art of Cross-Examination. In the history of the law there have been many great treatises written by many great legal minds, but only a few have had the influence and staying power to truly be called the classics. The Art of Cross-Examination by famed nineteenth-century trial lawyer Francis L. Wellman is certainly one of these books.
First published in 1903, The Art of Cross-Examination is a compulsively readable theory of cross-examination, enriched with entertaining and enlightening examples drawn from Wellman's own practice, cross-examinations from other celebrated litigators, and those from the infamous cases of the day. This beautiful, collectible edition is perfect for any law library or office or as a gift for anyone involved or interested in the law. As Professor Michael E. Tigar says in his new foreword to the book, "Until I reread this book, I had not realized how much I had gained from studying Wellman's approach. I think you will find this book worthy of your time."
An essential reference for lawyers, laymen and students alike, these extraordinary books are an elegant, high-quality addition to any home or office, and make the perfect gift. These books will provide a lifetime of enjoyment and a lasting legacy for future generations.
