Advanced Training in Depositions and Cross-Examination Track
Session A: 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
About the Program
High-quality adverse depositions require the conscious and conscientious application of an integrated set of logical cross-examination rules. This seminar wastes no time on entry-level wisdom, code chatter, idiosyncratic war stories, or tired maxims. Instead, it brilliantly teaches how to take adverse depositions as never before…the one right, logical way: as an intellectually rigorous discipline.
This seminar is continued in B11. It is recommended to attend both seminars.
You Will Learn
- The “Grand Unified Theory” of deposition cross-examination
- When to lead, rhetoricate, and reason with adverse deponents
- Firewalling answers with “So…,” enumeration, and looping
