Sincerity in trial litigation

I just came across this video on YouTube on a British blawg called Charon QC (or rather that is the name of the lawyer who runs the blog) which is both amusing and probably paints a clear picture of how to persuade a jury to find in your favour in a trial.

Of course in South Africa we haven’t had a jury system for decades.  Trials in South Africa are conducted before a judge and while sincerity and trust may place a role in the judge’s decision, you actually have to have a pretty decent argument on the law and facts to succeed.
