Course Description

Working with witnesses presents a minefield of potential ethical issues for civil and criminal litigators. Identifying and addressing these can be tricky, but mishandling them can lead to consequences such as sanctions and an undesirable outcome of your case.

In this program, attorney Christina Lynn draws from the Model Rules of Professional Conduct and case law to help viewers tackle some of the most common ethical issues involving witnesses. Topics covered include how to deal with lying and misbehaving witnesses, what to do when your ethical duties conflict with attorney-client privilege, deposing current and former employees, and special issues involving expert witnesses.
