Deposition Skills

This intensive, two-day training consists of presentations and “learn-by-doing” workshops designed to develop your advocacy skills in discovery depositions. In the workshops, participants will conduct and defend depositions based upon a fictional case file, and faculty will provide constructive critiques. The training will teach you to:
  • Develop a strategy for deposing witnesses, guided by a clear case theory.
  • Use best practices for discovering information from a deponent.
  • Obtain admissions and engage in theory testing when deposing a witness.
  • Overcome obstructive and aggressive tactics from a difficult deponent and opposing counsel.
  • Effectively defend a deposition through witness preparation and strategic use of objections.

This course is recommended for newer attorneys and attorneys with less experience with discovery depositions. It is open to attorney general staff only.
