A Mock Deposition

You can’t win a case in a deposition – but you can certainly lose it. Peter Lowe and his team join us this afternoon to work through a simulated deposition. We’ll set the scene: two lawyers and a supervisor witness are taking testimony under oath as part of pre-trial discovery in an employment discrimination case. After watching how a well-meaning supervisor performs in the hot seat, we’ll listen in on a debrief call where our defense lawyer discusses how the deposition went, and how the case looks. We’ll look at exhibits, learn how poor notes can create problems in your case, and identify other common pitfalls to avoid.
