As a new generation of jurors steps into the jury box, research shows that visual communication in the courtroom is more important than ever before. Effective visual presentation enhances engagement, understanding, retention, and persuasiveness, yet few attorneys receive visual communication training in law school.
Visual Litigation: Visual Communication Strategies and Today’s Technology arms its readers with a comprehensive foundation for creating the compelling visual presentations that today’s jurors, judges, and mediators demand. Readers will benefit from a detailed discussion of visual advocacy, in both the pretrial venue and the courtroom, from opening statement through closing argument.
Visual Litigation also includes pragmatic coverage of the ethical and legal boundaries related to what visuals may be displayed in trial, numerous examples of trial graphics, and guidance on how to leverage litigation software, such as Sanction, TrialPad, and SmartDraw. Interactive supplementary materials, such as downloadable case files for both criminal and civil litigation, are available via a robust companion website.
