Eisenberg, Hans and Colb on Prior Criminal Records, the Decision to Testify, and Trial Outcomes

Two pieces posted at The Legal Workshop address this topic. The first, by Theodore Eisenberg and Valerie P. Hans (both of Cornell Law School), is titled, Taking a Stand on Taking the Stand: The Effect of a Prior Criminal Record on the Decision to Testify and on Trial Outcomes. The second, by Sherry F. Colb (also of Cornell Law School), is entitled, Prior Convictions at Criminal Trials: A Response to Eisenberg and Hans. Both of these short pieces are well worth reading.
