In a series of four 90-minute webinars, Roger Dodd presents a completely integrated cross-examination system taught via learnable concrete principles. In each webinar Roger illustrates key principles and techniques of cross-examination to implement at trial and at depositions (in-person or online). His examples are based on dozens of real-life examples. Even if you don’t take the whole series, you will immediately be able to put to use important cross examination skills that Roger shares. 

The value of only “Three Rules” will become apparent as Roger teaches you the over-arching principles of cross-examination. You can then concentrate on greatly expanding the breadth and depth of every cross-examination by adding “Constructive” cross-examination to the traditional “Destructive” form of cross-examination. Constructive cross-examination focuses the content on our narrative, by using the opponent’s documents and witnesses.            

•    Over-Arching Principles of Cross-Examination
•    Philosophy of Cross-Examination
•    Destructive Cross-Examination
•    Constructive Cross-Examination
•    The Only Three Rules of Cross-Examination
