About Model Witness Examinations, Third Edition

The Rules of Evidence are one thing.
The mechanics of correctly eliciting facts -- in the heat of trial -- can be quite another.


In this concise handbook, 70 model examinations show you how to deal effectively with practical evidentiary issues that every trial lawyer faces. The authors--experienced, highly skilled litigators--give you trial-proven, sequences of questions that translate the Rules of Evidence into examinations that will correctly prove facts--and are easily molded to your specific case.

The models cover a broad variety of the basic issues that must be dealt with in direct, cross and redirect, and the use of depositions and interrogatories. Each model starts with a description of a fact situation and is followed by the examination in Q & A format. Following each examination, the authors cite and explain the key cases, rules, and secondary authorities--citations that are readily accessible, even in midtrial--and provide tactical and strategic guidance. Models cover:
  • Documents
  • Best Evidence or Original Document Problems
  • Demonstrative and Real Evidence
  • Opinions of the Lay Witness
  • Opinions of the Expert
  • Character, Habit and Custom
  • General Interest
  • Prior Inconsistent Statement; Use of Textbooks
  • Redirect
  • Depositions
  • Interrogatories
This edition includes new models and updated citations, providing litigators with a clear delineation of the law and issues and a clearly defined structure for proving facts, as well as sophisticated tactics and strategies. Model Witness Examinations, Third Edition is a hands-on guide and a powerful research tool ... before and during trial.

What Others Are Saying

"Model Witness Examinations takes the Rules of Evidence and puts them into the real life flow of question-answer format so that your facts come into evidence efficiently and your theory of the case unfolds. The samples will help you offer direct examination, challenge and impeach witnesses on cross-examination, and respond to cross on your redirect."

--Michigan Family Law Journal
