Description

Irving Younger’s seminars electrified, entertained and energized an entire generation of America’s advocates. Professor Stephen Easton introduces a new generation to Younger’s landmark work with this practical, practice-driven program.

The overriding issue when any witness testifies — in a mediation, deposition, pretrial hearing or at trial — is his or her credibility. Your effectiveness and success are grounded in your ability to expertly defend your witnesses’ credibility, or to effectively attack your adversary’s. In essence, the success of your practice hinges on two simple questions:

What do I ask? and When do I ask it?

Easton will help you reconcile the rules of evidence law and the modern considerations of the craft of advocacy. This fast-paced, media-rich program will both entertain and provide invaluable, practical tips to benefit every practicing lawyer — regardless of age, gender, experience or practice area.

Six hours plus course manual.
