    The outcome of most cases is determined by resolution of issues of fact, rather than issues of law. Depositions provide the most effective mechanism to ferret out what is true during the discovery phase. During that phase, only by deposition do you have the right to question parties and witnesses in person. The effectiveness of depositions you take and defend depends on your strategy and diligence.

    This webinar will enhance your skills in taking and defending depositions, and using deposition transcripts effectively. In this course, you will learn:

    • Timing and sequence of depositions vis à vis other discovery devices
    • How to prepare yourself to take and defend depositions
    • How to prepare your clients for their depositions
    • How to depose expert witnesses
    • How to use the funnel method in taking depositions
    • When to ask questions of your own client at depositions
    • How to deal with your clients’ bad answers at depositions
    • How to deal with obstreperous opposing counsel at depositions
    • Ten effective ways to use deposition transcripts before and during trial
    • How to take remote depositions, of particular importance during this pandemic
