Abstract

Everyone knows that lawyers are a tricky bunch. Just ask the man on the street, or better yet, your average juror. However, all tricks aren't necessarily bad. Some actually enhance the search for the truth. This short article presents the following practice tips which probably will be of the most use to younger litigators. To the more senior lawyers who use these tricks, this litany will resonate loudly. Accordingly, the author hereby explains a dozen tricks of the deposition trade (which, now disclosed, I probably won't be able to use – however, I still have some others in reserve).

Keywords: depositions, trials, tricks, tactics, litigation, litigators, lawyers, attorneys, evidence

JEL Classification: K41, K19, K49
