Litigation success often depends on taking an effective deposition of the opposing party's expert. This introductory class will offer practical techniques and tips to help you conduct a successful expert witness deposition. Our faculty expert will provide practical guidance on what you need to know, from the preliminary planning stages to the conclusion of the expert deposition. You will receive strategies for reviewing the expert's substantive opinions and for identifying vul­nerabilities in the expert's methodology, defi­ciencies in qualifications, and bias or interest that would affect the expert's objectivity. You also will receive advice on time manage­ment-a critical factor in successful expert depositions.

In addition, you will learn tech­niques for handling experts who are nonre­sponsive or obstructionist, and tips for deal­ing with inappropriate objections or interfer­ence by opposing counsel. For attorneys who are beginning their litigation practice, this course will help you develop your skills on taking an expert deposition. This class also is useful to more experienced practitioners who have limited experience with expert depositions. Attendees may also be interested in attending the course on Selecting and Working With Expert Witnesses on August 14 from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
