Today's Recap, 9/20

Tips on the Trial:
  • Louis: Be arrogant, taunting, and overall kind of obnoxious. Remember, you are the Sun King!  You are the state!
  • Attorneys: Make objections (leads) and make sure your questions are addressing the charges! React to the answers from your witnesses and follow up!  Repeat key points for emphasis.
  • Witnesses: Be animated! Make us believe!  Don't be intimidated by the questions.
  • Jury: Be taking good notes on the performances!
