What Lawyers Tell Witnesses; What Witnesses Hear
by Jamison Koehler on September 7, 2010
DA Confidential, my favorite prosecutor, saw the Venn diagram I posted here last week and came up with his own diagram, this one showing the overlap between what lawyers tell their witnesses and what witnesses hear. It is reassuring to hear that prosecutors encounter the same communication problems as defense lawyers. With thanks to Mr. Confidential, I reproduce his diagram here.
Note: I had a few technical problems in reproducing this correctly. If you are not able to read it as laid out below, you might try clicking on the image itself. That should bring up a larger, more readable version.
