Program Summary

This CLE will focus on strategies and considerations for taking fact witness depositions virtually during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic using platforms such as Zoom. While many of the practice pointers will be equally applicable to expert depositions, the emphasis will be on preparation of lay witnesses who may be unsophisticated or unfamiliar with the deposition process. Attorneys can expect to leave the CLE with a checklist for use in preparing for remote depositions.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • How to untangle the web of local, state, and federal regulations currently applying to legal proceedings and management of public health concerns in that context
  • How interactions with clients, opposing counsel, and vendors may be augmented or re-framed in the context of a remote legal proceeding
  • The use of technology and various ways to prepare oneself as well as witnesses to use it seamlessly in the context of litigation and specifically depositions
  • Concrete things that attorneys can do in advance to ensure a smooth remote proceeding
