About This Course

Whether to learn more about a prosecution case, test legal theories for the defense or lock in a witness’s story, preliminary and other pre-trial evidentiary hearings provide excellent opportunities. Considering the goals of each hearing is important, even when they are not decided in our favor, as well as that of each witness and each topic uncovered. Understanding the goals can help determine the strategy and tactics to be used at the hearing, in particular the choice of questioning technique.

This CLE course will focus specifically on the use of “discovery cross” techniques in order to uncover facts as well as lock in witness testimony. The course will explain how to build a solid transcript that will both pre-empt and prevent a witness from evading impeachment. The course will also explore client-centered counseling tips to prepare them for a hearing and buy in to the strategy. Handling objections and other legal issues will be presented.
