111 Ace Your Deposition: Insider Tips from a Plaintiff's Attorney and a Defense Attorney*

Nearly every clinician in corrections will experience a deposition at some point during their career - whether as a defendant in a lawsuit, a treating provider, or a corporate representative. The presenters include a plaintiff's attorney who routinely files deliberate indifference and medical negligence cases against correctional defendants and a defense attorney who regularly defends these cases. Together they will share insider tips on how to prepare for and ace your winning deposition.

Educational Objectives

  • Differentiate being deposed as a (1) defendant, (2) nonparty fact witness, and (3) corporate representative, and the impact of testimony from each role on the litigation
  • Discuss how policies and procedures form the basis of many deposition questions and how best to prepare for those questions
  • Review tips from both sides of the V on how to offer the best deposition testimony for the benefit of yourself, your facility, and your colleagues
