Kurt Melchior '51 will take you on a colorful guided tour of the off-the-record side of a seasoned trial lawyer's courtroom life. With almost sixty years of practice, Kurt has seen it all, and his experiences have yielded an instructive and entertaining book. Each of the one-hundred-plus, wide-ranging anecdotes is true. From dealing with the client who baldly lies to get a lawyer to take his case, to how to handle a star witness who's so nervous she's shaking, to the fine points of jury selection. "Off the Record" offers "on-the-job training" and delightful insight.
