Most lawyers do a good job in their opening statements, direct examinations, and closing arguments, but never learn the art of cross-examination. To master that art, lawyers need to conduct cross-examinations with the same attention they pay do the other phases of the trial.
Few suggestions by KTS Tulsi related to cross examinations :
The central point of cross-examination is that the witness should not be able to predict the answer to your questions. It is important to put the witness at ease by asking questions in a friendly manner. The more a witness talks, the better it is for the cross-examiner because each answer suggests several other questions. If you have documentary evidence and the witness makes a statement contrary to that document, pretend to believe him. Lead him to state more falsehood and use the document as a trump card to destroy his credibility. Shouting and screaming at the witness does no good. A smart cross-examiner never leaves his friendly demeanour and invariably gets a better of a witness
The webinar offers the following tips to highlight the special purposes of cross-examination and to be a guide for mastering the art of cross-examination.
One can learn from Webinar :
* Art of Cross Examination
* Practicing Criminal Law
* Things you should you about criminal law
