Matlon, Ronald J., Ed.; Crawford, Richard J., Ed.
Drawn from a conference intended as a step toward reuniting the disciplines of behavioral sciences and law, the items in this compilation were prepared by practitioners and educators in the areas of law, communication, social psychology, and sociology. The items are arranged in five sections according to these topics: interviewing and counseling, negotiating and bargaining, jury selection and jury behavior, direct and cross examination, and opening statements and closing arguments. Each section contains (1) a review of pertinent research, (2) discussions of legal strategies and research needs from the perspectives of the different disciplines, and (3) responses to the discussions. The compilation also contains the text of the keynote address presented by lawyer Percy Foreman and the concluding remarks offered by Gerald R. Miller, professor of communication. (FL)
