Have you ever read a transcript and thought, “Wow, that is a different depo than I remember!” Or, "Hmmm, I thought the witness said. . ." Do you want to know how to deal with obstreperous counsel? How to effectively prepare your witnesses and defend the deposition? How to get the answers you seek under court-mandated time constraints? How to get optimal information from expert witnesses? How to test theories and close off avenues of escape? Then this is the CLE for you! After this course, there will be nothing you cannot handle in taking and defending an effective deposition. This intensive two weekend "learning by doing" course offered by the School of Law to current upper class law students and members of the legal profession will show you how to more effectively plan for, take and defend depositions. Attendance is mandatory for all classes, both weekends. Participants take and defend depositions of lay and expert witnesses with critiques by and guidance from some of New Mexico’s best trial lawyers.
