The author, Dan Howard SC, who was Tedeschi’s junior counsel at the trial, has extensively annotated the transcript with comments that provide insights into the techniques of advocacy used by the cross-examiner in this singular case study of the art of cross-examination.

This book also provides the background to the case, and reproduces numerous plans and photographs that were exhibited in the trial, to enable the reader to closely follow the unfolding of this dramatic courtroom encounter.

R v Milat: A Case Study in Cross Examination provides a master class on cross-examination that will be invaluable to experienced advocates and to students of advocacy, and offers a ‘front row seat’ at a historic trial to anyone interested in the workings of our criminal justice system.
