Baker Sterchi Member Laura Beasley joins nine other Illinois attorneys as faculty of the 2019 Illinois Defense Counsel (IDC) Deposition Academy, a program designed specifically for Illinois Defense counsel providing an immersive experience for both lawyers with limited deposition experience, and those looking to refine their deposition skills. Academy participants team up in groups with faculty members to learn effective deposition skills and techniques. The experience is tailored to a group’s experience level so that each participant comes away with tips, techniques and pointers.
Beasley, who has been practicing for nearly 20 years, has extensive experience taking and defending depositions. Having undertaken over 40 jury trials in both state and federal courts, she has represented clients in all phases of litigation. Beasley is a member of several bar associations and currently serves as First Vice President of the IDC Board of Directors. She earned her Bachelor of Science from Austin Peay University and her law degree from Southern Illinois University School.
“I am confident that each and every participant of this year’s Academy will walk away with a better understanding of how to effectively take and defend depositions – a win for the participants and the clients they serve,” said Beasley.
The IDC Deposition Academy is being offered in Naperville on Friday, October 4 and in Collinsville on Friday, October 11. To learn more about the Academy at each location, or to register, visit here for Naperville or here for Collinsville.
