Behind the Trial Podcast with Evan R. Chesler, Chairman of Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP

How do the most celebrated trial lawyers of our generation convince 12 strangers? What are their secrets of persuasion and tricks of the trade? "Behind the Trial" takes you to the front lines to reveal how it all works when lives, fortunes, and reputations hang in the balance.

Presented by Benchmark Litigation in association with the trial firm of McKool Smith, the Behind the Trial podcast series features in-depth discussions with the nation’s most iconic trial lawyers.   Host and fellow trial lawyer Courtland Reichman, Principal at McKool Smith, captures the unique voice and style of each trial star by covering their best practices for presenting to a jury or judge, learning the pitfalls to avoid, and mastering the art of persuasion.

Evan went Behind the Trial with Courtland to discuss the keys of persuasion, common traits of an effective trial lawyer, the significance of the "people factor," and how versatility is critical in the courtroom (and he was just getting started).
