Modes of Discovery

Modes of DiscoveryThere are different ways for lawyers to get the information they need in discovery. One way is to use written questions called interrogatories. Another is to convene a deposition. A deposition describes the giving of live testimony under oath. In a deposition you or another witness is asked questions by the lawyers. Though very important, depositions usually take place in an informal setting such as a conference room. There will be a court reporter there who will record everything that anyone says and then print it out later in what is called the record or the transcript. The rule to remember in depositions is that with few exceptions once something is said, it is said forever and cannot be changed.
