Attorneys know the importance of preparation for litigation and trial for a successful outcome. Equally important, and often more difficult, is preparing the client or a witness for their role in litigation. The Texas State Law Library has 2 DVDs that can help. Witness Preparation for Depositions and Witness Preparation for Trial were produced by the American Bar Association. These presentations provide an overview of what to expect in each setting and detailed instructions on how to provide succinct, accurate, and credible answers. By having the witness view these DVDs, attorneys can be assured the client has received this reliable basic information and can concentrate on the specifics of the case. For more information, please contact a reference librarian by phone at (512) 463-1722 or using our Ask a Librarian service.
