Program Number: 2734

Program Date: 09/12/2017

Description

Tom Jackson and Mike Ginsberg discuss preparing for and taking depositions for the dual purpose of discovery and preparing for trial. The focus is on the different parts of the deposition, including fact gathering, fact development, exhaustion of the witness' knowledge, and theory testing, and special attention is given to the form and precision of the questioning so as to lock in the witness' testimony for summary judgment motions and trial impeachment, if necessary. Topics covered also include: depositions of experts, and the differences between the deposition of an expert and the deposition of a percipient witness or company representative, and depositions of corporate representatives pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 30(b)(6) and state equivalents. An essential program for any attorney involved in litigation, discovery and/or trial practice.
