Great adverse depositions require the conscious and conscientious application of the integrated set of logical rules that constitute the discipline of deposition cross examination, rules that best exploit case theory opportunities and best attack case theory problems.
All litigators should have studied this discipline's dozens of rules while still in law school, and, later on, should have observed their law firms' experienced litigators effectively employing those rules in every adverse deposition. But no law school and few, if any, law firms recognize deposition-taking is indeed an intellectually rigorous discipline ... if done right. Sadly, the vast majority of litigators practice for an entire career without ever truly understanding this crucial syllogism:
Trial is argument. Deposition is trial. Thus, deposition is argument.
This seminar is for litigators who don't yet take great adverse depositions every time out ... but want to.
