Breaking Away: New Approaches to Witness Preparation

Thursday, October 15, 2015 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

Most litigators feel that, during depositions and cross, clients should keep their answers short, not volunteer information, and not answer ambiguous questions.  But a new school of thought believes these witness preparation instructions can do more harm than good.  Join us for a thought-provoking discussion on new ways of preparing clients to answer opposing counsel’s questions, on why, in many instances, clients should be encouraged to say more, not less, and on when it makes sense to use these new approaches.
