Throughout the month of June, the American Association for Justice is hosting its Depositions College workshop, referred to this year as the ‘Depositions College: Implementing the Tools’ webinar. On the faculty lineup this year is Levinson and Stefani’s very own Ken Levinson.
Starting today, the online workshop will run each Friday in June from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. During each session, participants will receive insight into a certain new deposition skill through lectures during four separate two-hour workshops, and then have the opportunity to unpack that knowledge with a faculty member in small groups.
There is a variety of new skills that will be focused upon during this month of workshops, including: dealing with difficult or evasive witnesses, techniques for deposing non-party damage witnesses, taking corporate 30(b)(6) depositions, and methods for deposing medical experts or DME.
Some other faculty members teaching at the event include Karen R. Roberts of Roberts & Roberts in Texas, Jason Penn of Berman, Sobin, Gross, Feldman, & Darby LLP in Maryland, Yvonne M. Flaherty of Lockridge Grindal Nauen PLLP in Minnesota, Thomas W., Dillon of Konicek & Dillon, PC in Geneva, Illinois, and Seth L. Cardeli of Levin & Perconti, also in Chicago.
Each day of the program will begin with a lecture on the day’s topic, followed by a presentation from a sponsor, a live question and answer session, and finally the small group workshop led by a faculty member. AAJ’s four-part webinar will be able to be credited for 12 hours of CLE credit.
