This non-capital program was designed to be helpful both to defense lawyers experienced in cross examination techniques and those who are not, and instruct in the method of cross examination and impeachment created by Terence F. MacCarthy -- one of the country's leading authorities on cross-examination.

This course is funded by a grant from the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.
