The outstanding oral advocate has a powerful advantage in the courtroom. When you present your case, jurors instinctively form a mental picture utilizing the details you give them. Technology empowered methods, such as digital evidence presentation, ensure that your listeners envision the facts as you do. For the well-prepared lawyer, the advantage gained from the power of technology is almost always substantial, no matter what kind of case is being litigated.
Computer technology in the courtroom has dramatically expanded the possibilities of evidence presentation. The trial of the future will likely be entirely digital. In fact, paperless trials in "courtrooms of the future" are taking place around the country today.
There is a mystique attached to high-tech litigation (HTL) because it is relatively new to the courtroom. The persuasive advantage derived from technology-enhanced communication isa clear justification for mastering the use of these powerful tools. Carefully planned legal strategy and strong content remain the hallmark of a solid case. Carefully planned visual strategies and compelling graphics are the hallmark of a persuasive trial presentation.
This program explores the digital revolution in the courtroom. You gain insight from Federal District Court Judge George O'Toole, a pioneer in the use of cutting-edge courtroom technology. The entire seminar takes place in Judge O'Toole's courtroom. You get an insider's view of the exciting innovations in the federal courthouse in Boston. You see demonstrations of the latest "power tools" which integrate the presentation of documentary, physical, and computer-based evidence through computer graphic imaging, visual image printing, exhibit making, and wireless communication. The future is now; all of these technologies can be available at your fingertips today!
This seminar is for trial lawyers at all levels of experience who want to expand their knowledge of both current and future trends in the use of technology at trial.
