• Attorneys learn how they themselves learn best.
• Attorneys learn advantages and pitfalls of their own learning styles when it comes to teaching witnesses.
• Attorneys learn how to identify individual learning styles of witnesses.
• Attorneys learn how to use this information to best teach witness what witness needs to learn about basic common witness issues.

• Special considerations for video taped depositions.
• Identifying and assessing witness “symptoms” in deposition training process.
