Wicked Depositions - VCTA


      This is not your Daddy’s Depositions College.
      This is WICKED Depositions.

Virginia College of Trial Advocacy

Turbo-charge your confidence by learning deposition techniques that work and test drive them with the pros!    

Our expert faculty will provide you the tools, techniques and insights you need to get the most out of your depositions.    

Faculty will then work with you in hands-on breakout sessions, using a fact pattern from one of your own cases, to provide the immediate feedback and reinforcement you need to most effectively implement the techniques you’ve learned.
