We’re all familiar with the moral of Aesop’s fable, The Tortoise and the Hare: slow and steady wins the race.  But I want you to think about the hare for a minute.  He had the skill to beat the tortoise, but he was overconfident.  Thus, I would argue the slow and steady didn’t win the race so much as the hare lost the race by making it unnecessarily complicated.  He complicated the race by taking a nap in the middle!  The masters of cross examination, Larry Pozner and Roger Dodd, look at constructive cross examination in much the same way: don’t overcomplicate it. In fact, that’s why we’ve called this program, “Back to Basics: The three commandments of Constructive Cross Examination. According to our experts, those three commandments are: 

  • Use leading questions only 
  • Include only one new fact per question
  • Progress logically toward a singular goal
  • In this program, Larry and Roger will examine each of these commandments in depth.
