What do you tell witnesses about what to expect in court?

You might know exactly what's going to happen in the courtroom or deposition room -- but what about the witnesses? See:

King County Prosecutor's Office witness information from Victim Assistance Unit.

U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Washington witness information.

What to Expect in Discovery, from the author of The Lawsuit Survival Guide (KF8863 .M28 2001 at Reference Area).

By the way, even as you learn to use the most technical works aimed at lawyers, it's good to be aware of books for nonlawyers, notably those by Nolo. Why? (1) You can refer your clients to them. (2) They are good models of clear communication of legal issues -- and you need to be able to explain law to clients and jurors. (3) Sometimes you can use a quick, clear overview yourself.
