Closing Argument

It is concluding or summing up argument of the attornies or lawyers of both the parties on a particular case, after all evidence had been put forward and nothing else is left to be discussed. This closing argument is started by the plaintiffs lawyer and after that the defendants lawyer may reply in his/her defence. No new evidence may be produced. It normally ends with the attornies asking or requesting for the final verdict.
