Course description

How to Win at Deposition

it's difficult to overstate the importance of lay witness depositions to overall case success. Not only do depositions play a critical role in discovering case information, they lay the foundation for discrediting witnesses at trial. This course will focus on strategy, preparation, questioning lines, and objections. Go beyond doctrine and focus on the practical skills you need to drive favorable case results from your depositions.
