National Institute for Trial Advocacy

The Living Exhibit

On Demand
This live broadcast from Tuesday, December 12th has concluded. Register below to access the on demand recording.

Trial lawyers across the country forget that our factfinders, whether jurors or judges, are an audience deserving the best we can offer. Too many times, we walk into courtrooms with binders full of paper. We throw them onto some sort of document camera and expect everyone to follow along as we read page after page. The best trial lawyers, though, captivate and then educate them about the importance of the handful of exhibits that define the heart of their case.

NITA faculty member Daniel N. Deasy of Greenwood Village, Colorado will guide you through the best way to present evidence, use evidence, and bring it to life for your factfinder. Mr. Deasy will also discuss pitfalls for the practitioner “just trying to get through the trial.” For those who learn through visual stimuli, exhibit use is pivotal to advance your case story.
