The Importance of Digital Trial Presentations
Recently, we talked about the importance of videography in trials and how it can help sway the jury in numerous different ways. Along the same lines, other forms of technology are becoming more widely available for use in courtrooms around the country. Utilizing those tools can easily make your case stand apart from your opponent, so it’s important to learn the benefits of the technology available.
Presenting your case via a digital presentation is one of the most effective new methods seen in courtrooms today. Depending on the equipment available, these presentations could contain pictures, videos, or audio clips – all elements that could help you achieve the desired effect on the jury.
Instead of having to pull up each document or exhibit individually or out of order, you can make sure that each piece of evidence is organized into a carefully planned presentation. This way, your documents are ready to go when you need them. Having audio clips or pictures in your presentation also allows you ensure the quality of the content, eliminating the chances of grainy photos or unclear audio. As an added benefit, having any sort of audio clip or parts of the transcript from witness testimonies included in your presentation is a nice backup in case you might need to impeach a witness testimony. You could also use presentations as a way to include videos of expert testimony from witnesses that may be out of state or far away. Synced with transcripts, these videos can be really impactful on the jury.
