Cross examination is questioning by the opposing counsel.
00:17
It's typically going to be very much more confrontational.
00:21
It's going to be a lot more of yes, no questions or short questions that are meant Thio box you into a corner. Which is why it's really important
00:31
on cross examination that you listen to the question being asked
00:36
and that you make sure that you understand the question being asked
00:41
that you also it's really important. Vital that you Onley answer the question being asked
00:49
if the question being asked is,
00:51
Do you think so and so

01:23
You can always
01:23
clarify the answer
01:26
or say
01:29
yes, but I need to clarify my answer
01:33
and allow the court
01:34
to give you the opportunity to test to answer the question.
01:41
But you Onley want to answer the question being asked.
01:45
You don't want to start answering it based on what you think. The question is asking. You wanna answer just the question being asked,
01:52
which is important and it's important to clarify the questions if needed. If you're unsure of a question,
01:59
clarify it before you answer it.
