Well put, Evan. My suggestion for any new lawyer would be to prepare that first detailed deposition outline, and set a goal for each successive outline after that to have less and less detail. Or, to be more cautious, move to less detail in increments of 5 depositions. So, start out with great detail in depos 1 through 5, slightly less detail in depos 5 through 10, so on and so forth. Each person will have a different pace of course. Eventually the lawyer will find that only a broad issue outline will be enough to take up an entire fun-filled, joyous afternoon of deposition questioning.

Get an outliner like Notemap - software I use everyday.
