    MCLE’s Taking Remote Depositions Interactive Workshop is a unique opportunity for both experienced attorneys and those with little or no experience in handling depositions to learn how to prepare for, take, and defend depositions remotely.

    In this “interactive” program, you play the role of counsel in mock exercises that require you to use advanced Zoom features and your performance is immediately critiqued by faculty in small groups. You have the opportunity to upload and share documents that are marked as deposition exhibits. You also annotate documents with the assistance of stenographers who have experience in reporting remote depositions via Zoom.

    Pre-workshop preparation is required for this fast-paced program and ensures that you maximize the learning experience for yourself and other registrants.

    Special workshop materials and preparation

    You receive workshop materials, including simulation exercises, approximately one week prior to the workshop so that you may prepare. The agenda does not allow for any student preparation on the day of the seminar. Students should plan to spend approximately two hours reviewing the materials and preparing deposition questions in advance.
