Live Webinar: Tuesday, December 11, 2018
10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Central / 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern
WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Earn Dual CLE as you learn about ethics during depositions and best practices for getting the most out difficult witnesses.
If you aren’t 100% sure of the best ways to take depositions, you aren’t alone. Deposition training is rare in law school, and 6 in 10 attorneys have had no instruction before taking their first deposition.
But the fact is that depositions are more common than ever, and you have to be able to answer key questions as you prepare. Who is the judge? What are my goals? Who is the opposing counsel? How do I intend to use the deposition?
And there are evidentiary and procedural issues. What grounds for objections are proper and which are not? How do I handle privilege issues? When is it necessary to move to terminate or limit a deposition because the deposition is being conducted in bad faith or in a manner that is annoying, embarrassing, or oppressing to a witness?
Depositions in cases of medical malpractice can become heated very easily and fostering a professional atmosphere can be challenging. Earn DUAL CLE as you learn techniques for keeping everything on an even keel in the face of passionate litigants.
On December 11, Charles Molder will walk you through the following:
- Restoring professionalism and civility
- Rules of Professional Conduct
- Dealing with difficult counsel
- Ethically facing challenging expert witnesses
