Summary
This text traces the metavalues of truth and justice as developed in English trial advocacy treatises from 1600 to the late nineteenth century. Key questions addressed include: When lawyers historically have given written guidance to other lawyers about the most effective ways of advocating in court, what do they emphasize? How have advocacy texts incorporated society's concerns about truth and justice into their advice? Has there been a shift in the balance between discussions of truth and justice and the best techniques for winning cases?
