Simon, Craig S. Trials of Testimony; The Importance Of Preparing For Deposition and Trial.

Abstract: This paper provides an outline of important tips lawyers should remember when preparing witnesses for trial. The witness should understand the issues presented in the case and the specific issues the attorney wants to stress. Witnesses should be advised to listen carefully to the question and always tell the truth. Questions witnesses should ask themselves about every question they are asked include; do I understand the question, do I know the answer, and is my answer based on personal knowledge? A lawyer should also prepare the witness in areas of dress, relating to the jury, using exhibits while testifying, word choice during examination, and responding to cross-examination.
