Assessing Credibility in a Virtual World 

Feb. 18, 2021
ON

OBA PROGRAM | 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (ET)

Assessing the credibility of a witness is a key element for both lawyers and judges alike. For lawyers, it will determine what strategy they use when cross-examining witnesses and for the bench, it is a significant element that gets factored into what the final judgment will be. With the sudden shift to remote hearings and trials as a result of the global pandemic, litigators are being forced to adapt their advocacy practice and skills to this new virtual reality. Join our diverse panel of bench, bar and psychologist as we discuss technological and practice considerations that are essential to effective remote examinations. Our experienced speakers have conducted lengthy virtual trials as well as researched this area of the law, and will provide insightful, practical information that will benefit you as a practitioner as you think of how you can improve the virtual experience for your witness while sharpening your litigation skillset.
