Conducting Effective Virtual Examinations

Event Details: Virtual examinations now appear to be a permanent part of the litigation landscape. And while the convenience and cost-savings are consistently clear wins for clients, the efficacy and success of a remote examination ultimately rests with counsel. So, how do you prepare for not just the substance of the examination, but also the logistical quirks of proceeding remotely? Should there be an agreement to go off the record when technical issues arise? What are the rules about who can be in the same room as the witness during the examination and how are these enforced? Are there rules for other forms of communication during the examination like texting or chatting? Are documents electronic or paper and how should they be handled?

This new, 90-minute webinar with experienced litigation counsel Caroline Abela and Neil Paris will address best practices for conducting virtual discoveries, cross-examinations and more. You’ll receive practical pointers and insights on how to prepare witnesses for remote testimony, how to present an effective virtual presence, and how to maintain a professional and solemn examination environment. Technology has taught us that everything that can be done at an in-person examination can be done remotely–how well you do it is up to you! Attend this program and get proven strategies to help avoid unnecessary delays and achieve the best possible outcome for your client.

Live webinar with chat includes 60 day replay. This program features real-time audio of the presenter with synchronized presentation slides, and a chat feature that allows for live Q & A.
