Massachusetts Bar AssociationSchedules Depositions Seminar

Wednesday, August 1, 2007 - 01:00

The Massachusetts Bar Association will present a CLE seminar titled Handling Depositions With Confidence.

The program will take place on Thursday, August 9 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Boston University School of Law, 765 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston.

This seminar is a unique opportunity for attorneys with little or no experience in taking depositions to learn how to handle specific issues that may arise when preparing for, taking or defending a deposition.

The faculty will offer practical tips and pointers on: understanding the "usual stipulations"; knowing when one should be "on the record" or "off the record"; how to handle difficult opposing counsel; how to handle a 30(b)(6) deposition; what to do if the deponent wants to speak to his or her attorney; how to use documents during a deposition; what to do if a dispute arises during the deposition; sanctions for improper conduct during a deposition, and ethical issues that arise during a deposition.

The program chair is Grave V. Bacon Garcia, Morrison Mahoney LLP.
