Learning Litigation Skills from “Where the Crawdads Sing”
Where the Crawdads Sing – a murder mystery novel that has sold over 15 million copies and was converted into a bestselling movie – tells the story of Catherine "Kya" Clark who is accused of murdering Chase Andrews after their relationship ended. Join us as Philip Bogdanoff uses clips from the movie to examine Kya’s trial, as well as the trial tactics used by both the prosecutor and defense.
Topics include: whether a motion to suppress would have been successful in this case; why opening and closing arguments are so important to your next litigation case; what you can learn from the direct and cross-examinations of the various witnesses used throughout Kya’s trial; and how to deal with difficult clients. The program also discusses why Kya didn’t report a sexual assault to the police – and whether or not this is common in today’s society.
