This seminar will focus on the all-important skills to win at trial: the cross-examination.
Cross-examination is the most important element of a trial well-conducted. When you learn to do it right, you accomplish four critical goals: (1) you amp up the witness’s voice to relate each fact of your story to the jury; (2) you break that story down into clear, vertical “chapters” – factual building blocks that trigger and channel jury cognitions; (3) you construct logical, semantic links between your opening and closing – links necessary for the jury to resonate with your theory of the case; and (4) you use witness emotion – like anxiety -- to reconstruct fading memories, compel honesty, eliminate distortions, close down paths to irrational outcomes, and empower your jury to reach a clear decision.
Pozner shares signature techniques well-grounded in current thinking about the neuroscience of decision, memory, and emotion. He trains you on three tactical rules of cross-examination; explains how leading questions can moderate witness behavior on the stand; how simple sentence construction, fact-ordering, and the paintbrush of mental imagery can make a witness malleable; and how simple, logic-based facts can build memorable narrative, channel judge and jury cognition, and drive the engine of inference to your advantage.
Pozner calls his technique “The Chapter Method of Cross-Examination.” Learn it just once, and you can use it with spectacular results for the rest of your career. This entertaining, hands-on training offers you sample “chapters” and powerful sample scripts that you can tailor to your own facts. Let Pozner teach you how to derail your opponent and impeach the key witness – even the most evasive, memory-challenged or talkative one -- in just a matter of minutes.
