Larry Pozner and Roger Dodd Master the Art of Cross-Examination

When Barry Scheck writes about your book, people tend to take notice. For Denver-based attorney Larry Pozner and Roger Dodd, it’s high praise indeed for Cross-Examination: Science and Techniques. In the foreword to the book, Scheck says, “This is simply the best book on the art and science of cross-examination ever written. Before I contemplate a major cross-examination in a criminal case or a deposition of a significant witness in a civil case, I literally go back to this book to stimulate my thinking.”

CBA-CLE recently hosted Pozner and Dodd in Denver for their Advanced Constructive Cross-Examination program. Evaluations and comments from attendees included, “Their technique on cross-examination is brilliant.” “The best aspects of the program were the content and charisma of the speakers.” They left with us a signed copy of their second edition of Cross-Examination: Science and Techniques, and we would like to give it away—simply for liking us on our Facebook page. Just go to our page here and “Like” us by 5 p.m. on December 12, 2012. If you already a fan, you’ll be automatically entered in the drawing for the signed copy of the book, no need to do anything else.

Barry Scheck continues his review of Pozner and Dodd in the foreword to the book, “Larry and Roger are wonderful teachers and terrific lawyers….Good cross-examination, even great cross-examination, can be taught.” So, if you missed the live program in Denver, there are several chances to watch a video replay. Upcoming video replay dates are in Denver on December 20, January 9, February 6, March 11, April 9, and May 8, held at the CBA-CLE classroom. And, on December 20 in Colorado Springs and Grand Junction. You can see the full agenda by clicking here. Watching Larry Pozner and Roger Dodd is substantive and practical education and something all attorneys should experience.

Larry Pozner and Roger Dodd together have revolutionized the practice of cross-examination in the United States. In addition to Cross Examination: Science and Techniques, they are the creators of the nationally acclaimed seminar “Advanced Cross-Examination Techniques.” They have lectured, appeared as expert witnesses, or conducted full-day CLE programs on cross-examination in 46 states as well as in Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
