Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide litigators with our panel's approaches for presenting scientific evidence to juries, including building credibility from the start, weaving evidence in a coherent story for jurors, making the most of demonstratives, addressing contrary science, and embracing the “CSI effect."

- How can counsel maximize the effectiveness of demonstratives, even when cost is an issue?
- What are best practices for effectively addressing contrary science?
- Why should counsel embrace the “CSI effect” and how can this be done?
