Pretrial, 9E by Thomas A. Mauet and David Marcus is a clear and concise book that organizes pretrial planning into a series of steps students can easily master. Students have limited ways to learn about how lawyers prepare and manage cases while in ordinary law school classes. Pretrial, 9E introduces students to aspects of case development and management, ranging from an initial client interview to the analysis of settlement strategy and terms, and it provides sample documentation for each stage of the civil case. These are the day-to-day tasks that litigators encounter, but they are neglected by most ordinary law school courses. Pretrial helps to fill this void.
Thomas A. Mauet is this generation’s most influential writer in the field of litigation, contributing 37 editions of eight best-selling books to the legacy of litigation training in the United States and abroad:
