Trials and Arbitrations: Two Ways of the Trial Notebook.

There's no boilerplate in baseball.

--Someone wise

For business trials, see for starters the outlines for Trial Notebooks, either One or Two, at Evan Schaeffer's Illinois Trial Practice. We like the latter, but you should mix and match--and use your great unused brain. Both sides of it. And be advised. As Tom Hanks, Yogi Berra, or someone, once said: "There is no boilerplate in baseball". Each client, each problem to solve, each transaction, and each trial is unique, and Different From The Other. Do away with knee-jerk lawyer "form-think". It's bad for clients--not to mention uninspired, un-American (and un-English), and boring.
