Ms. Wess and her fellow panelists will provide a workshop on June 22, during which they will discuss why certain witnesses come across as more credible or likeable than others, and offer tips on getting the best testimony from a witness. Volunteers from the audience will also have the opportunity to sit in the witness box to answer questions from actual trials and depositions, followed by a discussion of the testimony.
