Book Description

NITA programs and law schools nationwide have used the first and second editions of The Effective Deposition so that attorneys and soon to be attorneys have all the essential know-how in taking a deposition the most critical step in discovery. Now in a revised third edition, the authors apply their expertise as attorneys and educators to bring the reader critical information on new rules, information on the impact of technological developments including e-discovery and digital transcription, along with new deposition techniques that you will not learn from any other text. Today, the goals in applying deposition skills remain important regardless of whether a case faces trial or alternative dispute resolution. In fact, with the increasing trend toward non-trial resolutions, depositions are used as much or more than in years past in the context of motions, negotiated settlements, mediations, arbitrations, and dismissals. Let NITA better serve you by using the third edition of The Effective Deposition.

The best way to learn how to depose someone is to attend several real depositions conducted by different attorneys. Then jump in and start asking questions as soon as someone will let you take your own depos. There's no secret to it. Much harder is knowing how to effectively prepare a witness and knowing the consequences particular depo issues could have down the road at trial or before a judge. This book covers just about every topic you need to know about before you begin taking or defending depos. It also covers various techniques and strategies for interrogating a witness.

The chapters are fairly self-contained, making it very handy as a reference and a topic primer. The writing is straightforward and focused on practical concerns, rather than presenting academic exercises. I highly recommend this book to new (and not so new) attorneys who have taken or defended fewer than a couple dozen depos.
