HOW TO DIRECT EXAMINE

Mark your questions on paper and draw a line down the centre to divide the pages for questions to be asked.  Use the other side to make notes of the answers as the witness testifies.


You cannot ask your own witness a leading question.  A leading questions implies, suggests, or prompts the witness to give a particular answer.


A witness can be asked to identify demonstrative evidence, such as documents and photographs.


Generally, a witness cannot give an opinion or draw a conclusion from the evidence unless he/she has been qualified as an expert witness.
