Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will prepare personal injury trial lawyers to depose corporate representatives in accordance with Rule 30(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and its state law equivalents. The webinar will discuss best practices for meeting the 30(b)(6) notice requirements, effectively questioning the corporate representative, dealing with difficult representatives, and raising and defending objections.

The panel will review these and other key issues:

- What tactics are useful when questioning the corporate representative and raising and defending objections during the deposition?
