Product Description

Effective word use is vital for anyone active in the law. For the attorney arguing a case or preparing a brief, for the jurist writing an opinion, and even for the law student, words are the ammunition needed to make the point.

For example, in attacking the credibility of opposing counsel's witness, a litigator might use such devastatingly critical terms as "cowardly" for "prudent"; "disdainful" or 'haughty" for "proud"; and "indifferent" or "lazy" for "easygoing." A lawyer's ability to choose words wisely—and accurately—is a valuable component for effective communication.

This expanded third edition of Advocacy Words: A Thesaurus is 27 percent longer than the first edition, with words arranged alphabetically in two groups: favorable-critical (Part One) and critical-favorable (Part Two). You need only look in one column and see the corresponding advocacy word or words in the opposite column.

Let Advocacy Words Expanded Third Edition be your companion in painting the verbal picture you want.
