Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide trial counsel with strategies for effectively using technology in the courtroom. The panel will discuss how to create digital presentations that will capture and hold a jury’s attention, integrate technology into examinations and arguments, and leverage data from wearable devices, Google Maps and Street View, and other cutting edge technology.

Description

Trial attorneys have a short time to capture a modern jury’s attention. Jurors of all ages are proficient in using apps and social media. Trial technology can help litigators engage jurors by presenting unfamiliar information in a familiar format.

A carefully constructed multimedia presentation can help jurors understand complex financial, scientific or technical data. A high-impact digital presentation can win sympathy for an injured medical malpractice plaintiff, while wearable trackers can undermine a personal injury plaintiff’s disability claim. Google Street View can show the condition of the property in a premises liability case or the obstructions and surroundings at an accident site.

Technology should be an essential component of a litigator’s courtroom strategy. To most effectively use technology at trial, counsel should incorporate a variety of formats throughout a case—audio, video, slides, 3D animation—to connect with different jurors who retain information differently.

Listen as our experienced panel of trial attorneys shares strategies for effectively using technology in the courtroom. The panel will discuss how to create digital presentations that will capture and hold a jury’s attention, integrate technology into examinations and arguments, and leverage data from wearable devices and other cutting edge technology.
