Taking and defending depositions are among the most critical skills every trial lawyer needs. This program combines lectures, demonstrations, and small interactive workshops to offer you a special opportunity to increase your deposition skills, led by masters of the techniques. Over the course of three days, top trial lawyers guide you through a variety of deposition techniques and strategies.
During hands-on workshops in small groups, you receive individual attention and critiques of your skills by highly experienced faculty. Your recorded workshops are yours to take home for further study. Workshop groups are divided based on several factors such as years in practice, experience, and location of your practice. This allows you to work with participants who have a similar skill level.
Learn how to master these critical deposition skills:
• Obtaining complete information
• Structuring the deposition of a difficult witness
"I have been in practice many years, taken hundreds of depositions, and yet this college was rich in practical and fresh information and terrific ideas. The lectures were insightful, in part because of the many clips our faculty put together to illustrate points. I liked the PowerPoints—how everyone summarized their topics and take-aways. The workshops were critical in putting the lectures into practice."
