Introduction to Preparing a Lay Witness for Deposition


Getting Inside a Lay Witness's Head: Basic Communication Techniques for Preparing Witnesses: Deposition, Defending

How a lawyer talks to a lay witness affects what the witness learns in the deposition preparation process and how well the witness retains what the lawyer is attempting to teach. At the outset, work with the witness's own perceptions and burdens so the witness can then focus on the job at hand in preparing for the deposition; explore the issues concerning the witness; assess the witness's mindset about the deposition issues; consider areas that may need privacy protections. Use effective communication techniques when going through the "do's" and "don'ts" of deposition preparation rules so that you make sure your witness is ready to respond effectively when the deposition starts.
