Filmed and recorded live at VTLA's Advocacy in Thought, Word and Deed seminar on Oct. 3, 2019, in Richmond, VA.

As attorneys, we often believe our performance in the courtroom dictates results. However, you can’t do it all. Preparing your witnesses, whether for arbitration, deposition or hearing, requires skill on your part but at the end of the day, decisions are often based on the performance and likeability of your witnesses. Learn techniques that best prepare your witnesses to speak for themselves.

To receive CLE credit for 2020, this course must be completed prior to midnight, Oct. 31, 2020.
