During examinations for discovery, a lawyer needs to think fast and make difficult decisions that could have an impact on his or her entire case. You need to be prepared and ready to tackle what arises during this litigation process. Our experienced faculty will walk you through the process from beginning to end, providing practical guidance on how to successfully conduct and defend an examination. You will receive valuable tips on the common pitfalls to avoid, as well as techniques for dealing with difficult witnesses and counsel. This unique program will end with a mock discovery where you will have the opportunity to review the material in advance, and compare the approach and strategy you would use to that of counsel conducting the mock discovery.
