Where: 311 Jarvis Street
When: Monday, September 26, 2016
From: 4:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Trials are won on the evidence and much of the evidence comes through witnesses. Trial counsel need to master the art of examination-in-chief and cross-examination. This “art” is a skill that can be learned. This session will provide invaluable learning and practical tips from an experienced trial counsel and trial advocacy teacher, including:
• How does one avoid asking a non-leading question in direct examination? What is the difference between a leading and a focused question?
• What are the scope of and limits on cross-examination?
• How do you impeach a witness using a prior inconsistent statement? When do we impeach a witness?
• What are proper and improper objections?
• What is the often misunderstood rule in Browne v. Dunn?
Tip sheets and materials will be provided. Don’t miss this opportunity to share in this important discussion. Click here to download the flyer!
