Bericht von Felix Karpp

The topic of the workshop could not have been hotter after the verdict in Johnny Depp v Amber Heard the day before.

Alexander Horn brought the participants to the same level of knowledge by giving a short introduction in U.S. procedure and compared it to German procedure. Thereafter, he introduced the most common objections with vivid examples and short videos. In the following, we concentrated on the two objections “relevance“ and “hearsay“. In a criminal case, the participants applied their new knowledge: They played public prosecutor and defendant, raised objections and argued for or against it.
