Description

In both jury and nonjury trials, dealing with difficult witnesses is a crucial skill for attorneys. This session will explore the best tactics for handling your own witnesses, as well as opposing counsel's. We'll step back to examine how witnesses fit into your overall case strategy, and then outline best practices to master the art of witness prep and examination. We'll also explain how to tune in to important nonverbal signals in the courtroom, and we'll review some key ethical principles to guide your witness examination tactics.
