To litigate in the COVID-19 era you need more than the traditional cross-examination techniques you’ve always relied on. COVID-19 has dramatically changed the face of litigation...kick-starting a technology shift in the practice of law that has already taken place in almost every other area of society. Zoom, Webex, and other remote platforms are now a regular part of the litigation and pre-litigation process and will remain so, long after the COVID crisis ends. Judges in courts at every level across the U.S., Canada, and the UK have embraced these platforms for remote depositions, mediations, and non-jury trials, saying that remote is so efficient and saves so much in costs that it will be permanent.

Nationally recognized trial lawyer and the “King of Cross" Roger Dodd, who is also an internationally recognized author, speaker, and attorney coach, will help you transform your traditional cross-examination skills into new remote cross-examination skills. Even the most seasoned trial lawyer can benefit from some of the dozens and dozens of techniques and tips Dodd will cover in this webinar. Don't miss this opportunity to adapt your skills to conquer this new reality.


Some of what you will learn:

  • Remote cross-examinations will become permanent—find out what judges are saying.
  • The 10 most common errors in remote cross-examination—and their solutions.
  • Develop a different concentration and focus than other cross-examinations.
  • Control your new environment.
  • Recreate you courtroom space in your remote environment.
  • Common technical fails---and their solutions.
  • Audio only environments.
  • Keys to overcoming remote cross-examination pitfalls.
