Powerful Deliberations:
Putting It All Together for the Jury

Chris Ritter distills the many lessons he has learned from working on hundreds of complex, high-profile, civil and criminal cases to help you win at trial. Bringing together legal strategy, psychology, and persuasion theory, Powerful Deliberations focuses on how jurors learn, think, and deliberate to turn them from neutral finders of fact into advocates for their client’s side.
