One of my co-workers found interesting trial advocacy tidbits about other parts of the world.

Mike Nizza, a New York Times columnist, wrote an article titled: "Game Over: Sudoku Spoils a Trial in Australia."

Michel-Adrien Sheppard,reference librarian from Ottawa, blogged about "Supreme Court Advocacy Institute Helps Lawyers Prepare For Their Big Day In Court."

Thanks, Noa.

Three months ago, three of our professors had articles published in the SSRN (Social Science Research Network.) If you subscribe to this online publication, check out the following articles:

Rule 804 (b) (6) The Illegitimate Child of the Failed Liaison Between the Hearsay Rule and Confrontation Clause written by Professors Anthony Bocchino and David Sonenshein.

Determining Facts : The Myth of Direct Evidence written by Professor Richard K. Greenstein.
