Winning Strategies for Cross - A 13-Episode Web Series


Pricing Register Online


A criminal trial is a battle of competing narratives; the defense must attack and refute the prosecution’s attempts to tell a story of guilt by utilizing a persuasive and effective cross-examination that paints your client's story of innocence. In this 13-Episode NACDL Web Series, nationally recognized experts and seasoned practitioners will share their proven and time-tested methods for effective advanced cross-examination. You will learn how to tailor your cross to complement and highlight your theory of the case, as well as advance the story of your client’s innocence through opposing witnesses. You will hone your cross-examination skills and learn to apply them across the board in your trial practice, from preparation to taking down that snitch or forensic expert on your way to an acquittal!  The faculty will guide you through the potentially dangerous and troubled waters of cross-examination, and give you the skills and techniques to confront, control, and conquer the prosecutions' witnesses.
