New!  You can soon hold in your hand a brand-new guide through every step, maze, and roadblock of today's advocacy.  No more hopeless battles, no more guesswork, no more indecision, no more stalling or procrastinating, no more muddle. The initial chapter describes in detail whether and how to take on a new file. 

This book is apt for every court or tribunal, whatever your level of experience.  You wished for an equalizer; this map shows how victories are built.  That itself justifies your purchase. 

Here is a self-help tool both intensely practical, and also detailed and systematic.  It is  very readable.  It distills and updates the accumulated experience of generations of the best barristers, and many judges.  And it adds new discoveries.

This book tells you why some things work, but others are dangerous, so it shines light into dark corners.  All that will be good for your clients.  And good for you too: use the book to calm your fears and misgivings, to raise your confidence, and to make people better respect you.

Get the advantage.  Read this book!

About The Author

Jean E. Côté has experienced an outstanding career as a lawyer, teacher, writer and judge, and has been a leading voice in his chosen profession for over 50 years. Known to have an exceptionally acute mind and outstanding memory, he willingly shares his knowledge and enthusiasm with both associates and students alike.
His education began with an Honours B.A. from McGill University, continuing with an L.L.B. from the University of Alberta and a graduate degree, a B.C.L., from the University of Oxford. Jean was one of the first set of law clerks at the Supreme Court of Canada, clerking to Justice Martland.
From 1966 to 1987 he practised law with Hurlburt Reynolds Stevenson & Agrios and their successors. In 1984 he became Queen's Counsel. Then he served for almost 28 years as a Justice of three Courts of Appeal: Alberta, the NWT and Nunavut.
An avid reader and writer, Jean has prepared courses for the Faculties of Law and Extension at the University of Alberta, Bar Admission, the Legal Education Society of Alberta, and the Canadian Institute for the Administration of Justice.
An author of over 1700 written judgments and 14 books, his style remains simple, clear and concise, walking the reader through some very complicated subjects.
Jean Côté is a recipient of the University of Alberta's Distinguished Alumni Award, two Canadian medals and two lifetime awards from the Legal Education Society of Alberta. He was most recently awarded the University of Alberta's most prestigious award, an Honorary Doctorate of Laws.
