Featured seminar
Deposition Essentials: Strategies and Techniques
Deposition and discovery skills are key components in developing a successful litigation practice. Lawyers aren’t born with these skills, and there are many pitfalls to avoid in the rules of procedure and evidence, as well as many lessons to be learned to provide your client the best possible chance for a successful outcome—whether at trial, mediation or during settlement. Best of all, sponsored in part by West (a Thomson Reuters business), every registrant will receive a copy of Depositions in a Nutshell by Albert J. Moore, David A. Binder, Paul Bergman and Jason Light. This easy-to-use book is a concise guide to deposition practice and should be on every litigator’s shelf. Register for the seminar today!
