DESCRIPTION

In examinations, lawyers have to think on their feet and make difficult on-the-spot decisions that have implications for their entire case. Being prepared is essential. This program features experienced courtroom lawyers providing tips on how to prepare for examinations: what you should cover and what you shouldn't, how to deal with difficult witnesses and opposing counsel, and how to make the most of your 7 hours (or less). This program will provide practical guidance on how to maximize the effectiveness of your examinations and how to avoid mistakes that can undermine your case. Topics to be addressed include:

  • How to prepare for examination-in-chief, cross-examination, and discovery
  • Questions that must be asked
  • Questions not to ask
  • When to object and when not to object
  • How to deal with difficult witnesses
  • How to interact with opposing parties and the court
