Session Details

Leveraging the Psychological Perspective on Deposition to Strengthen Case Outcomes

Brian McMahon, Ph.D.
Partner, Gate City Partners, LLC

This spirited talk advocates for a renewed appreciation for the long-term impact of deposition while elucidating this highly unusual human interaction from the social, cognitive and evolutionary psychological perspectives. Brian McMahon, Ph.D., draws on his research in social cognition to show litigators how and why their clients are prone to destructively turn deposition into personal combat; become overwhelmed in the moment and expose themselves to undue risk with verbosity; and misremember – often with great confidence – case facts, clouding and confusing the record to their detriment. Attorneys will gain insight into how to address these potential pitfalls and empower deponents, strengthen case theory and maximize potential settlement and trial outcomes.

CLE hours: 1.5 CLE hours (1.5 Trial Practice hours pending)
