Upcoming DRI Seminars

    Deposition Institute

    Veritext Legal Solutions (30th Floor) 1 N. Franklin St. #3000 Chicago, IL 60606

    Designed specifically for the blossoming defense trial lawyer, this intensive, three-day program fills the deposition training void. Students will attend a series of entertaining, informative, and interactive lectures covering all aspects of deposition taking. They will observe live deposition demonstrations conducted by experienced defense trial lawyers. And, utilizing small groups and a low faculty-to- student ratio, students will apply these lessons while participating in workshops providing hands-on training in taking and defending party and expert depositions, dealing with difficult witnesses and adversary counsel, and preparing witnesses for depositions—all under the tutelage of a faculty member and utilizing a litigation fact pattern designed to make the experience as real as possible. Students will depart with court reporter transcripts and videos of their workshop depositions, a new network of trial lawyer colleagues, and, most importantly, improved deposition skills.
