Course Description

Attorneys sometimes forget that clients who are involved in litigation are vulnerable to fear, anxiety, anger, and depression as a result of the uncertainty and demands of the litigation process. By embracing the role of attorney as counselor, treating our clients more like patients,  and helping them to better navigate these stressful events, practitioners will also improve their client’s performance in high pressure settings such as depositions, trials, and mediations. In this program, Alan Fanger, a prominent Boston-area litigator and developer of a client e-learning platform, will share insights and suggestions on how to prepare clients for major litigation events in order to obtain the best outcome.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Prepare for mediations, depositions, and trials
  2. Tailor witness preparation to the nuances of your client’s personality
  3. Improve client outcomes by counseling more effectively
  4. Leverage technology to enhance client preparation
