James B. Lovelace Manuscript: Court Tales, Trials and Appeals

Identifier: MSS-94-1

Scope and Contents

The manuscript of the book Court Tales, Trials and Appeals relates to the actual experiences of the author, a retired lawyer, and an alumnus of the University of Virginia Law School. He offers advice and points out pitfalls to the law student and young lawyer that they would not find in a textbook or case book. Although the cases were tried in North Carolina, and involve North Carolina law, the procedure is identical to that used in code states, and the principles of law involved are mostly common law. The book is primarily intended to further prepare the law student for his or her practical life as a trial lawyer.
