Cross-examination: an art or a science?

Cross-examination: an art or a science?

By Daniel Sala, Richard Edney and Josh Taaffe

Advocacy Courts Criminal Procedure 

Those who study and hone the skills of cross-examination are often called upon to consider the question – Is effective cross-examination an art or a science? In the past cross-examination was considered an art. It was spoken of in terms of art in Francis Wellman’s famous work The Art of Cross-Examination first published in 1903. Wellman was a New York trial attorney who collected famous anecdotes in his book. The copyright has expired and his book is available free online. It is still worth reading.
