One of the components of trial is the closing statements. The closing statements are when each party gets one last chance to address the jury or judge. The closing arguments are done after all the evidence is presented and after direct and cross examination. During closing statements no new evidence can be introduced and only topics that were already discussed during the trial can be brought up. If an attorney feels as if the opposing counsel has said something untrue or is trying to feed the jury incorrect information they can object. While closing statements are not the most important part of a trial they are still a very important part. Closing statements are the last thing that the jury will hear before they go into deliberation. This is the last chance for the attorneys to get their point across and connect their points during the case to their opening statement.
