Winning at Deposition Featuring Shane Read 2020

Product ID: CA3076W
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Expert strategies for your next deposition

Be brief. Use short questions, plain words. Ask only leading questions.

Do these rules sound awfully familiar to you? For decades, trial lawyers have learned the art of trial advocacy from the legendary “Ten Commandments of Cross-Examination” by Irving Younger.1

In Winning at Deposition, distinguished presenter Shane Read will explain why these heavily referenced commandments may be wrong for your case and show you more effective techniques for fine-tuning your approach. This hybrid program will offer the best of both words — popular excerpts from Shane’s 2019 appearance in Milwaukee, followed by a remote presentation and Q&A with Shane in the afternoon.
