Buckner, a global-focused sports and educational law firm, will conduct its next web-based course, “Advanced Investigation Interview Techniques,” on Friday, September 25, 2015, 12:00 noon ET (4:00 pm GMT; UTC -6 hours). Michael L. Buckner, an attorney with Buckner, will be the webinar presenter.
This webinar will provide guidance to general counsel, investigators, compliance administrators, sports league officials and higher-education professionals on using advanced interview techniques for internal investigations and intelligence-gathering operations.
Recent and ongoing regulatory reform and media scrutiny has forced sports organizations, higher-education institutions and other entities to be more diligent about conducting comprehensive internal investigations when allegations surface. The outcome of an internal investigation witness interview is a function of the interviewer’s preparation, knowledge and performance. An understanding and application of advanced witness interview techniques is essential to obtaining favorable information for an internal investigation or intelligence-gathering operation. The webinar will assist attorneys, investigators and other professionals with using advanced techniques to conduct witness interviews during an internal investigation or intelligence-gathering operation. The program will review various interviewing methodologies, as well as focus on best practices to: (a) develop investigation interview questions; and (b) assess credibility.
The information discussed during the webinar will be helpful for internal investigators charged with investigating:
• Personnel matters
• NCAA rules-violations
• Anti-doping violations
• Sports rules infractions.
