Earn the Ever Coveted Ethics Credit!
The CLE will discuss how graphics are a valuable litigation tool when they are used correctly. The CLE will touch on how to provide a visual aspect to the jury, so that they will be able to gain a better understanding and a more in-depth feel for what is going on in the case. The effectiveness of the demonstrative evidence is key to the success of a case. The CLE helps clarify what types of graphics are admissible. In order to be admissible they must be authenticated, be accurate, complete, fair, and relevant to the case. Graphics are used to help guide the jury, and assist them in understanding the important aspects of the case.
