There will always be an element of unpredictability to any cross-examination; yet, a great deal of planning can be done in advance of any cross-examination. Indeed, The Honourable Charles Dubin, Q.C., who later became Chief Justice of Ontario, noted that great cross-examinations are “ninety percent preparation and ten percent inspiration.”
Join us for the second installment of our Preparation Series focusing on Cross-Examination and find out how to develop and execute a successful cross-examination strategy, with a special focus on remote preparation this year. Skilled litigators and distinguished judges will discuss the key goals of an effective cross-examination, how to decide whether or not to cross-examine a particular witness, how to start strong and end strong and how to organize and frame your questions in a way that keeps you in control of the testimony.
Join leading litigators from different practice areas as they break down their most effective cross-examination preparation techniques, comparing and contrasting their time-tested styles and methodologies.
