Kobie Flowers, partner at Brown, Goldstein & Levy, taught at a Cross-Examination Workshop hosted by the National Criminal Defense College (“NCDC”) in Washington D.C. from Jan. 12 to 15. The workshop provided an opportunity for participants to improve their cross-examination skills by using case problems and examples to reinforce faculty lectures. As part of the NCDC faculty, Flowers taught throughout the workshop. BGL attorneys Chelsea Crawford, Monica Basche and Jason Harary attended the workshop as participants.
More than a series of lectures, the workshop included breakout sessions with professional actors playing the roles of witnesses, giving participants an opportunity to sharpen their skills while being coached by NCDC faculty members.
