The clock is ticking! The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) has a compliance date of January 1, 2020. Yet many businesses still don’t know what they need to do to comply – or worse, don’t realize that they are covered by the law. But no need to panic! This webinar will prepare both in-house and outside counsel for the inevitability of this new, broad privacy law. Given CCPA’s potential penalties for noncompliance, no one wants to stumble. We’re here to help.

It is exceptionally rare that a defense witness “wins” the case through his or her deposition testimony. Indeed, it is far more likely that the testimony of the defense witness will “lose” the case during the deposition. Mock jury data clearly illustrates that a witness who consistently “pivots” or preemptively tries to “beat the questioner to the punch” to score points for the defense at deposition is often described as “dodging” and “sidestepping” questions. The witness brain is inherently wired to defend itself in the face of an adversarial examination and unfavorable case facts. That defensive survival response, resulting from subcortical amygdala activation (Amygdala “Hi-Jack”), comes in the form of forced explanations designed either to defeat the questioner (fight), reframe the issue or “put lipstick on a pig” (flight), or pivot to a different issue (evade). A witness’s ability to control emotion depends on having the capacity to modulate negative emotional responses through cognitive-emotional strategies, which will be covered in this program. Additionally, this program will also include the very latest updates on the plaintiff Reptile Revolution efforts across the country, and the various defense methods being used to defeat it at every phase of litigation.
