Podcast 90: Mark Bennett, a criminal defense lawyer from Texas on the jury and the art of advocacy

Today I am talking to Mark Bennett, a lawyer from Houston, Texas who specializes in Criminal defense work. Mark is also the author of the  Defending People blog – the art and science of criminal defense trial lawyering. His blog won the ABA Journal best criminal blog award in a hard won fight with Scott Greenfield’s blog, Simple Justice – more of which later.

This is the fourth podcast with US lawyers  on the theme of Criminal Law  and complements the podcasts I have done with Scott Greenfield, Gideon and Brian Tannebaum.

Today, we paint a picture of trial advocacy, start with defendants talking too much, move on to  the importance of jury selection and then look at how US trial lawyers deal with examination in chief (direct) and cross-examination.
