Some quick advice on giving a good closing statement. First, do not summarize all of the evidence, particularly in a trial that lasted less than a week. Even the best trial lawyers who write about closing often throw in some trite advice about summarizing the key evidence. But it is just a bad idea. Second, view your close as a chance to give jurors that support your client ammunition to argue for him in during deliberations. Third, try to use the specific language of the law given to the jurors by the judge to your favor. Jurors correctly want to follow the law. Give them a chance to do so.
I just found this amazing website with samples of closing arguments for prosecution and defense! (. it’s one of my sites). The attorney goes through a fact pattern on an assault case involving a claim of self-defense, and also a burglary case involving potential mistaken identity and a coerced confession. There will be more examples of closing arguments coming in the weeks to come. Check it out. Here is the website . If you can think of other closing argument topics to write about (besides burglary and assault) let me know in the comment section below.
Closing your cover letter with something like this is more assertive ( not aggressive ) than a simple "I look forward to hearing from you," which can really signal that you think you'll be a real asset to the company and you're willing to prove it. The other closing sentences are variations on the theme. One points out to the hiring manager that you'll hit the ground running and exceed expectations if you get the position, another points out that you're passionate about the industry and the opportunity the company offers will help that passion grow.
