The Best Deposition Summaries for Any Situation

Understand how to prepare and reflect your legal team and client's needs when tasked with writing a deposition summary.

Deposition summaries are one of the most powerful litigation tools; however, they are often an afterthought, leading to the litigation team spending needless hours searching for important testimony and documents. Deposition summaries can become the backbone for a successful motion practice, preparing for upcoming depositions and direct and cross examinations of witnesses at trial. This topic is for legal assistants, paralegals and attorneys who wish to hone their skills on preparing the most effective deposition summaries, what needs to be done prior to preparing the summaries, the various methods of summarizing, options for outsourcing, software program types available, and how deposition summaries are integral to the entire litigation process, from discovery to motion practice and at trial.
