    Good ethics is good strategy. Leading experts in witness preparation and professional responsibility teach how to understand the blurry line between fair and foul in witness preparation and how to avoid the unfortunate choice between under-preparing your witness or committing an ethics violation.

    This webinar will explore issues such as:

    • Whether and how far a lawyer may go in suggesting that the witness give a completely different answer from the one the witness gives during preparation
    • Whether and to what extent a lawyer can ask a witness to consider what other witnesses are likely to say in their testimony
    • What lawyers may or may not do to affect how a witness recalls events in question
    • What lawyers may or may not do to affect the apparent certainty of the witness’s recollection (moving witnesses from tentative to confident or vice versa)
    • What lawyers may or may not do to alter the witness’s demeanor
    • Whether and to what extent a lawyer may discuss scenarios that could avoid culpability before finding out the client’s version of the events
    • Whether and to what extent a lawyer may rehearse the witness’s testimony or coach the witness
    • Whether and to what extent a lawyer may prepare witnesses as a group
