Cicero Journal due Monday Feb. 25th
To defend Archias successfully, Cicero decided upon a less customary courtroom procedure. In a well-written essay (or at least a paragraph or so), describe his new approach and include how Cicero approaches the jury, requests the exception he wants, and defends his request. What Ciceronian elements (e.g., rhetorical devices, word placement) are evident and how do they help his case? Be sure to include Latin (translated or paraphrased into English) that supports your ideas.
