Practical Strategies for Taking the High Road in Litigation – and Winning

All of us have seen the courtroom drama theatrics of surprise witnesses and “hard-hitting” advocates screaming at the jury box. What makes for great entertainment, however, is quite unpleasant (and often sanctionable) in real-life legal practice. This practical course takes an incisive look at the most contentious litigation techniques you're likely to encounter and offers straight-forward solutions, time-tested and shared by seasoned attorney faculty. Neutralize “strong arm” litigation tactics and evasive behavior and regain control of your case. Register today!

  • Take a good look at the ”worst of the worst” in counsel, witness and client behavior and learn how to counter it.
  • Understand common reasons behind witnesses' resistant and evasive responses and minimize wiggle room with skillful question wording.
  • Spot the “professional expert witness” syndrome in time to correct it or use to your advantage.
  • Address both the behavioral and strategic problems during witness preparation.
  • Make certain your own behavior doesn't cross into unethical – explore tough real-life dilemmas.
  • Stave off some of the most destructive client behaviors and get tips for mitigating the damage.
  • Learn when and how to enlist the help of the court to cut the Gordian knot of opponent's obstructionist tactics.
  • Walk away with real-life tools for preventing “dirty tricks” and removing their influence on the case outcome.
