Preparing Witnesses

  • Presented by Cindy Kim and Lenina Trinidad

Attorneys may inadvertently cross the fine line from responsibly preparing a witness to unethically coaching a witness. This webinar will first provide participants with tips and best practices for preparing witnesses to testify at a deposition or trial. Then, participants will gain an understanding of the ethical responsibilities surrounding witness preparation—specifically what lawyers can and cannot do to stay within their ethical bounds.
