Closing Argument

Definition - What does Closing Argument mean?

A closing argument is a final statement in a court case given by the legal representatives on each side which sums up their facts as were raised in the case and reminds the jury or the judge of all the facts that were presented by that side during the case.

Justipedia explains Closing Argument

A closing argument is the last opportunity for each side to prove their point so they will try to summarize the points that are pertinent to their side as strongly as possible. They are not allowed to say anything they want. It must stay within the rules of court. The presiding judge has the ability to overrule any statement made to the jury by either side during closing arguments and the jury would be obliged to disregard the point or comment being raised.
