A case like Enron’s clearly demonstrates a lawyer’s skill to persuade a jury, Jones said. In most criminal cases in which an act of violence is committed, a lawyer proves a crime was committed by producing evidence such as a body or weapon for example.

In a white collar crime, such as the Enron case, a lawyer has to persuade a jury that ultimately makes the decision whether the actions of the defendants constitute a crime or not, Jones said.
