Webinar: Crossing the Line - Breaking through to Inspired Impeachment

Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm (EST)

Effective impeachment can be one of the most dramatic moments in a courtroom. Do it wrong, however, and it can look like the lawyer has been beaten at her own game. In this webinar, one will learn the most common methods of impeachment of a witness, as well as the statutory and common law provisions that allow for that impeachment. Impeachment by motive and bias are highlighted in the overview. Learn the mechanics of impeachment by prior inconsistent statement and omission, as well as how to structure your prior inconsistent impeachments so that the jury actually understands and appreciates that you have undermined the witness's credibility.
