The Three P’s: Planning, Preparing, and Presenting Technology at Trial

On Demand
This live broadcast from Thursday, August 9th has concluded. Register below to access the on demand recording.

Effective use of technology in the courtroom begins long before the trial ever starts. Unfortunately, many legal teams underestimate the amount of preparation that should go into the technical aspects of their case, putting them at significant risk of losing the case—or their reputation. Understanding and preparing for these challenges allow trial teams to be more efficient, persuasive, and confident that they will put their best case forward.

In this presentation, legal technologist Shannon L. Bales will discuss the best practices for planning, preparing, and presenting electronic evidence at trial. He’ll also discuss the unique challenges courts and law firms experience at implementing technology used in the courtroom, and standards and procedures needed to protect against risk, save money, optimize your trial team’s technical presentation, and foster an efficient process and technology adoption
