In the world of trial techniques, cross-examination gets a lot of attention while direct examination is usually taken for granted. It is often assumed that direct examination is a very straightforward matter. After all, it is your witness telling his or her own story, is it not?
Experienced counsel know that matters are not so simple. It is probably true that more cases are won or lost on direct examination than on cross-examination. In this vein, this full-day program will improve your skills in direct examination through a review of the principles and practices that underlie effective preparation and execution of this trial technique.
