Who should attend: All those who interview witnesses or who want to sharpen their litigation or negotiation skills.

Learning level: All levels

When interviewing witnesses, speaking with clients, and negotiating with opposing counsel, lawyers often try to detect deception.  To do so, lawyers often rely on their “gut instinct” and popular stereotypes about how liars behave when they lie. However, in recent years, scientists have shown that many popular stereotypes about liars are inaccurate. For example, liars are not more likely to avoid eye contact or be more fidgety than truth-tellers.

In this thought-provoking and practical program from former US Department of Justice attorney Michael Johnson, you will learn scientifically validated methods for detecting lies and deception.
