About

The TLC Seminar on Cross Examination will introduce you to TLC’s advanced cross exam methods including the “soft cross” and “controlled cross” that empower trial lawyers to tell their clients’ stories thru a winning cross examination. Taught by an accomplished faculty team of TLC-trained experienced trial attorneys, as well as behavioral experts, this course will be a “hands-on” experience. You will learn TLC cross exam methods by doing, not suffering through endless lectures. Come join us and learn to turn the opposing witnesses from antagonists into witnesses whose testimony supports your case and helps you achieve justice for your clients.
