Lisa Rodriguez Spoke at “The Art of the Deposition”On June 4, 2015 by Schnader
Partner Lisa Rodriguez was a faculty member for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute’s (PBI) two-day training workship on “The Art of the Deposition.” The program afforded attorneys the opportunity to learn how to prepare for, take and defend depositions, and to use deposition testimony at trial. For more experienced attorneys, the workshop provided a venue for sharpening their deposition skills. Attendees practiced deposing opposing party’s witness, defending their own witness, and taking the deposition of an expert. Other topics of instruction included dealing with difficult lawyers and witnesses; making objections and reacting to those from opposing counsel; using an instruction not to answer; using documents during an examination; and impeaching a witness by prior inconsistent testimony at trial.
