Civil Lawsuit Basics: Depositions: Asking Questions In Person Before Trial (Torrance)

Thursday, March 26, 2020:  12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Oral depositions are a powerful tool used to collect valuable information from either parties or witnesses in a civil lawsuit. Depositions obtain testimony under oath outside of court in order to establish facts, gauge witness credibility, and help resolve the lawsuit. This class will focus on California state court rules and procedures for noticing a deposition, taking and preserving testimony, and helpful strategies for incorporating the information obtained into use at trial or settlement.

Class covers:

  • Requirements and service of notice; travel limits
  • Using a deposition subpoena to obtain discovery from a non-party
  • Responding to a notice of deposition
  • Conducting a deposition; objections; compelling attendance
  • Use of deposition testimony
