More details
Preparing witnesses for deposition or trial testimony involves many moving parts- getting the substance of the testimony in order, making sure the witness does not wear his gym clothes for an on-camera session, deciding who on the trial team is best suited to take their testimony. What many lawyers forget however is that witness preparation walks a fine line with what could be considered witness “coaching.” This session will discuss what Model Rules of Professional Conduct could apply to witness preparation, how to handle the overly helpful witness, and how to handle a witness who is less than forthcoming with pertinent information. JuryScope senior trial consultants will use their library of experiences in hundreds of all types of cases to delve into the answers to these questions and more.  

*Participants may attend this CLE via teleconference for $60 for RCBA members and $80 for non-RCBA members. Instructions for accessing the teleconference will be sent prior to the CLE. We cannot offer the live teleconference to law students for free. Law students may still attend the live presentation for free. If you have any questions, please email us at info@ramseybar.org or call 651-222-0846.
