Cicero the Advocate

Edited by Jonathan Powell and Jeremy Paterson

Cicero's courtroom speeches are the most significant examples we have of the art of the ancient Roman advocate. This book is the first in English to take them seriously as examples of advocacy designed to secure a verdict. It aims to set them in the context of the Roman legal system and of ancient techniques of persuasion, and to compare their methods with those available to modern advocates.
