About This Course
Attorney Coleen Middleton is an experienced litigator, and in this thought-provoking course, she goes over the importance and affects pre-trial preparation, witness preparation, expert witnesses, and cross-examination have on the successful outcome of a trial. Many attorneys conduct cross-examination without giving a real thought into what is involved and far too often a cross-examination consists of a number of unplanned questions without purpose. Ms. Middleton methodically goes through the 10 Rules of Direct Examination, and the necessary strategies for cross-examination, redirect examination and re-cross examination. The course concludes with noteworthy cases and recent trends.
