The Marine Law Symposium is a premier training event that will prepare you to navigate the legal aspects of recreational boating accidents.  

In Winning Expert Witness Strategies you will receive an in depth view of two fatal boating accidents and the lawsuits that followed - one resulting in a verdict, appeal and a re-trial;  the other involving an improper repair on a sophisticated product.  In addition to these case studies, the topics include:

- Mock Deposition -  Watch as an expert witness is deposed by two attorneys looking to elicit responses to help their case and/or discredit the witness.  

- Expert Witness - Receive insight and tips to help you in the role of expert witness

- Tools of the Trade - Take an in-depth look at some of the common tools and resources used to effectively research a case

- Law Enforcement as an Expert - Receive a first hand look at the role of law enforcement as an expert witness.
