What has been said about ‘The Devil’s Advocate’:
‘...the book of my dreams, the Titanic of the advocacy world (even though it is modestly sized)...Iain Morley has bridged the gap between reading about advocacy and how you actually do it... [the book is] warmly welcomed and should be in every white wig box.’
Phillip Taylor, MBE Barrister at Law, in The Barrister
‘Quite simply [this] is the best book of its kind. Indeed it is the only book of its kind… Buy this book. Study it. You won’t regret it.’
Professor A.R. Forrest, University of Sheffield, in Science & Justice
The Devil’s Advocate is now a best-selling paperback advocacy manual in the UK and worldwide, in its third edition, published by Sweet & Maxwell, bringing a fresh approach to the Dos and Don’ts of good advocacy. Written with humour in a conversational style, explaining clear techniques, with the helpful feature that only one or two points are raised on each page, the work takes you through the practical application of advocacy step-by-step.
The Devil’s Pupil is designed to be a companion work, in which the techniques described in The Devil’s Advocate can be seen at work in the transcripts of famous trials. Sections of what happened in court have been published, with commentary, written with the same sense of humour and directness for which The Devil’s Advocate is famous.
The Devil’s Junior is the next step up, just as a Pupil will wish to become a Junior at the Bar. And it reviews the greatest trial in history – the Nuremberg trial of 1945-46. Advocates determined to be seriously good in court will want all three books.
