Course #5: Depositions

In Keenan Ball College’s “Depositions” small-group course, our Faculty will work one-on-one with you and your current case to maximize your depositions. We’ll coach you through creating your hit list, deciding on and carrying out your question format, and using the deposition process and results to assemble and fine tune your direct and cross outlines for trial. You’ll learn many key deposition techniques — and role play with actual deponents as you’re individually coached with such important matters as guiding your witness in the skills needed to field intimidating questions.

SCHOLARSHIPS: We offer two scholarships for Course #5, secure in knowing that early scholarship recipients will one day find themselves in the financial position to sponsor future Keenan Ball College named scholarships. To apply to receive a scholarship for Course #5, please click here.
