EI Senior Vice President Richard Shin, Vice Presidents John Gale and Gale Mosteller, and Senior Economist Lona Fowdur participated as expert witnesses in an all-day training program developed by the National Institute of Trial Advocacy.

The learning-by-doing program, “Deposing the Expert Witness,” was held at Georgetown University Law Center on August 3, 2013.  The course offered training in expert-witness deposition techniques mostly to lawyers at the associate level.  The four economists from EI volunteered as expert-witness faculty members. Students practiced deposing the economists, and faculty members (both lawyers and economists) discussed and critiqued deposition techniques.
