Abstract

This paper argues that the beliefs, attitudes and behaviour of the audience determine the effect of any persuasive communication. As a result of this, legal advocates must inquire into the beliefs, attitudes and behaviour of judges and juries (amongst other audiences) and must reject traditional ideas of persuasion being a quality inherent in a legal advocate.
