How To Make Cross-Examination An Open Book Exam at Trial and at
In-Person or Online Depositions
Presented by Roger J. Dodd, Esq., "The King of Cross"

Date: Wednesday, March 2, 2022
Time: 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Credits: 1.5 G
Roger Dodd presents a completely integrated cross-examination system taught via learnable concrete principles. In each webinar Roger illustrates key principles and techniques of cross-examination to implement at trial and at depositions (in-person or online). His examples are based on dozens of real-life examples. Even if you don’t take the whole series, you will immediately be able to put to use important cross examination skills that Roger shares.

The organizational form of ‘Chapters’ keeps the cross-examiner organized and on point, at trial and in depositions (in-person or online). Each Chapter teaches the jury an important visual fact, places the fact into context, and ties it to other important facts in the case. Once you are organized, your comfort level increases. Thoughtful word selection tied to our narrative causes Chapters to be more robust and impactful. Words matter. Word selection becomes more focused. You will increase your comfort level, through being organized on how you keep your notes for cross-examination. Cross becomes a well-organized open book exam.
