Abstract

When ‘making a case’ in court, the defense lawyer engages different arguments in a situated performance. At the same time, these arguments have developed over time in front of different audiences. In this paper I will follow the construction of arguments in an actual criminal case from preparation to the trial by focusing on the developments and refinements of the arguments that inform and shape the case.
