Changing Your Mindset: An Introduction to Advanced Cross Examination [Premium]
Duration: 90 minutes
The image of cross examination, as played out in film and literature, revolves mostly around the idea of a destructive cross examination. Put the key witness or opponent on the stand and badger, berate or trick him or her into providing the key confession, the key fact, that makes (or alternatively, breaks) their case. For generations, lawyers were taught to be destructive when facing opposing witnesses. But the response to an attack is at best unpredictable.
There is a better way: rather than focusing on destroying your opponent’s case, why not focus on building your own? That idea forms the basis of Cross Examination: Science and Techniques by Larry Posner and Roger Dodd. In this program, Roger and Larry will introduce the concept of constructive cross examination and the necessary shift in mindset to adopt such an approach.
