Tips for new lawyers taking their first depositions

The Lawyerist Blog has a good post on deposition tips for new lawyers.  It's authored by Evan Schaeffer who has written a book called Deposition Checklists and Strategies.  In his Lawyerist post, Evan outlines 6 techniques he says are intended to help new lawyers get over the jitters of taking their first few depos.  You'll have to head over to the Lawyerist to check out the tips in full but here's the outline:

Six Steps to Better Depositions

  1. Show up early.
  2. Make small talk.
  3. Keep your temper in check.
  4. Don't be a slave to your outline.
  5. Be an active listener
  6. Critique yourself.
