My pregame trial ritual (access required)

I have gotten into a pretty good pre-court routine, which helps me to be prepared in the event that a simple day in court ends up being an entire day at court.


  1. Tic-tacs = an excellent tip. I’ve been “chewing” half-pieces of gum for years.

  2. I’m always surprised at the number of lawyers who go to court without Vol. 1 of the Rules. Like you, I never go without it. But trial after trial, I keep seeing people who don’t bring it to court. I never understood that.
