Join us for a panel presentation led by battle-tested trial lawyers and a federal judge on the nuts and bolts of effectively discrediting the forgetful, biased, or just plain lying witness. Whether you are an old pro who just hasn't had a trial in a while, or a newly minted lawyer gearing up for your first, this should be an informative and fun refresher on how to do this effectively.

• What is witness impeachment, and why does it matter in trials?
• The forms of impeachment
• The three C's of prior inconsistent statements
• Strategic and tactical reasons for impeachment
• Avoiding impeachment of your own witnesses
