Presentation of Courtroom Evidence
This two-day (16-hour) course focuses not so much on technical issues, but rather on communication methods employed by expert witnesses for effective testimony. The two-day workshop uses video taping and solid constructive critiquing. Throughout the workshop, participants will learn and practice the key elements to improve their overall testifying skills and become more confident. Witness effectiveness is increased by enhancing positive skills and modifying subconscious behaviors that interfere with the goal of successful public speaking. This is intended for criminalists, toxicologists, latent print and questioned document examiners, investigators, crime scene and identification technicians, and law enforcement specialists called to testify in court (applies for all levels of experience).
