Act of Communication™ Katherine James, Alan Blumenfeld and Andrew Caple-Shaw are back at the Boardwalk Seminar.
They have come armed with Katherine’s nationally recognized Witness Preparation secrets in order to help you answer that age old question: “Does this witness I’m working with have a serious problem, or is there an easy fix and I just don’t have the tools in my toolbox to fix it?”
It is the most rigorous and informative Witness Preparation Workshop an attorney can take. It combines the skills of the litigator, the psychologist, the educator, and, of course, the theater artist – skills that all attorneys must have in order to be successful with each witness. As with all Act of Communication™ Workshops, each unit of learning consists of fully participatory exercises.
AAJ Press will be releasing Katherine James' book on Witness Preparation, THE SECOND BEST LIFE IN THE WORLD: A Witness Preparation Guide to Human Damages.
First part of the session focuses on learning skills from disciplines in which most attorneys have little or no experience which are applied to the task of Witness Preparation.
