This is an intensive "learning by doing"; course offered by the School of Law to current, upper class law students and members of the legal profession, and taught by Steve Scholl (`89). You will practice taking and defending depositions of lay and expert witnesses.
How do you deal with obstreperous counsel? How do you effectively defend? How do you get the answers you seek under court-mandated time constraints? How do you get optimal information from expert witnesses? How do you test theories and close off avenues of escape? After this course, there will be no surprises at depo and nothing you can't handle in taking the effective depo. Community enrollment is limited to ten, so register now for this valuable opportunity to polish these fundamental practice skills!
