    Model Witness Examinations: Fourth Edition gives trial-proven sequences of questions that translate the Rules of Evidence into examinations that will correctly prove facts and are easily molded to specific cases.

    The models cover a broad variety of basic issues that must be dealt with in direct, cross, and redirect and the use of depositions and interrogatories. Each model starts with a description of a fact situation and is followed by the examination in Q & A format. Following each examination, analytical comments explain the key cases, rules, and secondary authorities, and tactical and strategic guidance is provided.

    Models cover:

  • Recollection
  • Documents
  • Best Evidence or Original Document Problems
  • Demonstrative and Real Evidence
  • Opinions of the Expert
  • Character, Habit, and Custom
  • General Interest
  • Redirect
  • Depositions
  • Interrogatories
  • This edition includes new materials on direct examination and electronically stored information regarding social media and an extensive new chapter on cross-examination. New models and updated citations provide litigators with a clear denlineation of the law and issues and a clearly defined structure for proving facts, as well as sophisticated tactics and strategies. Model Witness Examinations, Fourth Edition is a hands-on guide and a powerful research tool...before and during trial.
