MacCarthy on Cross-Examination
Terence F. MacCarthy
Learn how to look good on cross, even when the witness is not cooperating. Terence MacCarthy is synonymous with effective cross-examination. For 40 years he has been the head of the Federal Defender’s Office in Chicago, and is among the top CLE instructors in the nation for his lectures on cross-examination technique.

Filled with illustrative cross-examinations from actual cases, this book is your key to employing these proven techniques in your own practice. Using the three themes that run through out the book–looking good, telling a story, and using short statements–you can take control of your cross-examinations and achieve the results you want. To improve and to change your thoughts on cross-examination, order your copy of MacCarthy on Cross-Examination today!

“MacCarthy’s system of cross will revolutionize trial lawyering and far surpass other efforts in refining cross-examination technique because it provides the philosophy behind as well as the system to implement his “Look Good” cross-examination technique. I only hope that my opposing counsel do not read (this book) and adopt Terry’s methods too.” John P. Buckley, Ungaretti & Harris

A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO SOFTWARE LICENSING FOR LICENSEES AND LICENSORS: Model Forms and Annotations Included in Print and CD-ROM, Third Edition

By H. Ward Classen
This new third edition is revised and updated with three new chapters and numerous forms. A Practical Guide to Software Licensing for Licensees and Licensors examines the fundamental issues that both licensors and licensees confront in the negotiation of a software license and, where appropriate, looks at relevant ancillary issues such as software development as well as maintenance and support. It primarily focuses on non-mass market agreements, since most retail or mass market off-the-shelf software is governed by non-negotiable shrinkwrap and clickwrap licenses. Nonetheless, the principles of software licensing are the same for both shrink-wrapped, click wrapped, and custom-developed software. The book is accompanied by and cross-referenced to an annotated software license. A companion CD-ROM is also included for customization of the software license and related forms.

Written in practical, easily understandable language, this book is cross referenced to a model agreement. It is written from the perspective of both the licensor and the licensee and includes model forms with alternative clauses to fit many perspectives. The CD-ROM is a great companion filled with easy-to-use forms.

NEW in this edition are chapters on:
* Licensing Issues Arising from Alternative Delivery Models * When and Where Problems Arise * Representing the Global Entity * Plus – 10 new forms for a total of 45 forms, plus 2 exhibits
