Overview (Program Summary)

Please join ACC Northeast and our sponsor, Nutter McClennen & Fish LLP, for this lively and informative program.

Ken Berman, Nutter Partner, and author of the ABA best-seller, Reinventing Witness Preparation: Unlocking the Secrets to Testimonial Success, will give two engaging back-to-back TED-style talks on a transformative approach to witness preparation and how changes in this important area of law practice can lead clients to give better truthful answers and get improved outcomes.

In his first talk, "Why Smart People Give Stupid Testimony," Ken will explain the perils of conventional witness preparation and the philosophy underlying a more dynamic and enlightened approach, illustrating points with examples from well-known witnesses and cases.

His second talk, "Out of the Mouths of Politicians: Making Witnesses Great Again," distills important witness preparation lessons from famous statements by presidents and presidential candidates, and shows how witnesses can eliminate bad responses and give answers that actually help their cases.

Ken's entertaining and provocative talks will appeal to both litigation and non-litigation counsel and will help anyone who ever needs to answer important questions.
