Deposition Skills

Topic Description

The Depositions program focuses on enhancing the skills needed to effectively elicit information and obtain admissions through depositions. Participants will enhance their deposition skills through frequent opportunities to conduct deposition examinations and defend depositions in a simulated deposition setting, followed by faculty commentary and critique. Lectures on several topics relevant to effective depositions will supplement participant performances and faculty critique. The exercises will focus on witness preparation, dealing with preliminary matters, a technique for effectively eliciting complete information from witnesses, using exhibits, dealing with obstreperous opposing counsel, obtaining admissions, and theory testing. The course will be taught by attorney general office-based, NAGTRI trained faculty members.

Students will receive, in advance, full case materials to review and prepare for the program. There will be a minimal amount of lecture and demonstration by the trainers. The students will be involved immediately in an intensive hands-on setting. Critiques of students’ performance of an exercise will be both substantive and stylistic.
