At Spohrer Dodd, our attorneys are committed to shaping the future of the legal industry.
Our founding partner, Robert Spohrer, recently coached at the National Trial Lawyer’s Top 40 Under 40 Trial Academy Bootcamp, and our senior partner, Roger J. Dodd, hosts the Roger Dodd Trial Clinic to educate emerging attorneys on today’s litigation environment and the top techniques for trial.
Attorney Dodd recently sold out 2 clinics, which will take place on December 4 and 5 in Indianapolis, Indiana and on December 7 and 8 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clinics are limited to 8 participants and fill up quickly. The upcoming clinic on February 12 and 13, 2020 is already down to 3 spots, but you can keep track of all future events here.
About the Clinics
All attendees experience 2 days with Roger Dodd, an additional faculty member, and 2 professional improv actors, who will play the parts of various witnesses. Clinics focus on cross-examinations and cover the following skills and techniques:
- Conducting a constructive cross
- Anticipating the mental, emotional, psychological, and physiological responses of witnesses during the cross
- Staying organized during the preparation and delivery of the cross using chapters
- Maximizing the effect of the cross by sequencing its chapters
- Controlling an opposing expert witness
- Using the rule of threes to make your cross memorable
- Loops, double loops, and spontaneous loops
- Controlling difficult witnesses
Dodd’s insight and constructive criticism are valuable to attorneys in all fields. Throughout the workshop, participants will be on their feet performing cross-examinations in an unscripted, nurturing, and intentionally intense environment.
