As soon as you step through the courtroom doors, you know you will no longer be in control. You enter the courtroom, and all eyes are on you. This isn’t your first time in court, but it’s your first time as a defendant in a civil case. You take a deep breath and feel your suit jacket tighten against your chest. You know this case relies on your testimony. You take another deep breath, clear your thoughts; and take the stand. Testifying in a civil trial can be stressful for both new and experienced officers. In this course, we’ll help officers successfully prepare for civil litigation and expose some tactics and strategies trial attorneys use to undermine even the most honest and confident officers.
