VACDL has partnered with NACDL to present a 6-hour webcast from Larry Pozner, master of cross examination, on December 4, 2020. [You will have 72 hours to view the program, so you don't have to watch all 6 hours on Friday!]

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to offer this self-study program (approved for 5.5 CLE hours) to our members, and hope that you will register to attend!


Larry Pozner is America’s recognized authority on advanced cross examination techniques.  Larry’s innovative and entertaining program explains how in cross examinations we can use principles of neuroscience and behavioral psychology to win cases. Techniques are explained in a step-by step fashion with examples.

Larry’s book, "Cross Examination: Science and Techniques" (Lexis 3rd edition 2016, by Pozner and Dodd) modernized our profession’s view of the purposes and methods of modern cross.  For more than 25 years this has been America’s bestselling book on cross. Buy it here!

Larry’s programs on cross have taken him to 48 states, across Canada, and inexplicably, to Brazil. He is a former Colorado public defender and past president of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Larry has long been recognized in Best Lawyers in America in Criminal Law—both white collar and non-white collar, and civil “bet the company” litigation. He represented the Denver Broncos franchise for many years as trial counsel.
