summarization

To summarize means to sum up the main points of something — a summarization is this kind of summing up. Elementary school book reports are big on summarization.

When you're a trial lawyer, the last part of the argument you make before the court is called a summation. It included a summarization of the points you have made in the trial so far, but it goes one step further, to push this summarization toward a conclusion you hope the judge or jury will accept.
