Dominic Lamb discusses how to prepare an effective cross-examination of a complainant in a sexual assault case, starting with properly interviewing your client and reviewing the disclosure with your client. Dominica Lamb reviews tips for preparing your cross-examination questions and strategies for executing your cross-examination, particularly given the nature of the allegations and the potentially vulnerable complainant. The presenter also touches on advancing your client’s narrative through your cross-examination of the complainant, and the impact this can have on your client’s case if/when the client later testifies at trial.
