At the turn of this century, it was unusual to see sophisticated graphics as part of a courtroom presentation. In fact, for years many judges refused to allow attorneys to present artist-designed illustrations.
Lately though, attorneys are replacing their chalkboard drawings with sophisticated videos, animations and illustrations to explain things like anatomical processes, surgical procedures or technical processes.
Such courtroom technology is no longer expensive or labor-intensive to design, and it is easy to edit when new facts suddenly come to light. Since most people learn news or find entertainment  in photos, infographics and video, many jurors and judges expect to be taught complex concepts efficiently and through technology and graphics.
In the next installment in Seyfarth’s Trial Education Series, seasoned trial attorneys and Visual Communication consultants will provide tips for trial attorneys on communicating your case effectively with visual aids. Specifically, our presenters will address:
  • When and how to present text with imagery, pictures, videos, graphs, and 
  • Pitfalls and traps that everylawyer should keep in mind when using computer-generated courtroom visuals
