How well do you know your rules of evidence —in practice? Can you avoid hearsay objections or get your evidence in over them? Do you know how to lay a proper foundation for all the evidence you want to submit? Will you challenge a witness on competence grounds? When can you use character evidence or similar acts evidence? What kind of impeachment evidence can you use? Is it a good idea? How do you elicit expert testimony? Don’t miss this interactive presentation in which our expert practitioners answer all of these questions and more by demonstrating the actual introduction of evidence through a mock trial. Listen to the witnesses as they testify, look at the exhibits, and vote to overrule or sustain objections that are made. Then hear the ruling of a real judge and his explanation of why it was the correct ruling. The program will have two 15 minute breaks and one hour for lunch (lunch provided).
