Summary
Embedded in each of the narratives is an analysis of the use by prosecutors and defense attorneys of trial advocacy techniques (involving discovery, pre-trial motions, jury selection, direct testimony, cross-examination, the introduction of forensic exhibits, and summations) to craft compelling stories about what happened. Also assess the impact of cultural, social, and political values on the proceedings and the outcomes
