Take Your Career to New Heights With Winning Deposition Skills

Depositions continue to be the most important part of any litigation practice; it’s where case theories are tested and confirmed. When you know how and what to ask, depositions can pave the way for winning dispositive motions, more productive settlement negotiations, and even voluntary dismissals.

Depose Any Kind of Witness

This learning-by-doing training uses a mock case where participants depose three different witnesses (including an expert) in a risk-free environment - the classroom. Complete with real court reporters too, you can’t find a more realistic deposition setting!
