The Verdict Is In: Trial Presentation Software vs PowerPoint

Trialdirector by Ipro

PowerPoint has long been used by attorneys in trial, but is it the best option out there when taking your argument to the jury? An important factor during trial is holding the jury’s attention, relaying the facts of the case in a clear and effective manner and presenting evidence in the most persuasive way to convince the jury to side with your client. While PowerPoint can be a great choice for opening remarks and closing arguments, there is so much more that goes into a compelling case.

Dynamic Presentation

With the technology-heavy world we live in, it’s no surprise jurors expect a certain amount of that tech to follow them into a courtroom. The plethora of law focused TV shows like Bull and CSI helps to perpetuate that idea, so much so that there’s a term for it, The CSI Effect. As courtroom technology becomes even more pervasive, jurors will continue to expect a sophisticated argument during trial.

While it may not be realistic to implement the level of tech in fictional television dramas, it is possible to move away from foam boards and the limitations of linear presentations like PowerPoint and embrace the dynamic presentation.

Dynamic presentation lets you jump to different exhibits, zoom in on particular points in a document to draw the jury’s attention, and display synchronized deposition videos with a transcript of text for jurors to follow along. As you move effortlessly through the evidence, the jurors won’t be able to take their eyes or attention off of you.

Captivate the Jury

The course of a case can shift during trial with unexpected events. Preparation for the unexpected builds juror confidence in the evidence presented. Don’t lose them searching through slides while the expediency of your argument is diminished. Instead, adjust in real time seamlessly adapting to changes. Newly admissible evidence? It’s easily available. A witness answers differently on the stand than in the deposition? Bring up their synchronized video depo for a surefire impeachment. The jury’s attention will stay focused on the details of the case, not the logistics of attorneys sorting through case files.

The Transition

Worried about making the switch? Getting started using TrialDirector is easy. With an intuitive user interface, you can get documents loaded and start putting your case together in a snap. Or grab the resources in MyIpro to help you set up your case. Once you’re ready for more, training is available to unlock the technology’s fullest potential. And if you aren’t quite ready to walk away from PowerPoint completely, that’s okay. You can convert your PowerPoint slides to PDF and upload them to TrialDirector and take advantage of the robust tools available.

While PowerPoint has its place in the courtroom, its features are limited. Why not use a software program specifically designed for trial to prepare, deliver, and ultimately, wow the jury? When you’re ready to take your trial presentation to the next level, you’re ready for TrialDirector 360.

Ipro Announces the Return of The Sedona Conference® to its Ipro Tech Show

Tempe, Ariz. March 8, 2019 – Ipro, a global leader in eDiscovery and Trial software technology announced today that The Sedona Conference will again produce CLE sessions at its annual user conference.  The Sedona Conference will offer three accredited programs on Tuesday April 30, 2019:

  1.  Legal Holds for Collections and Preservation: A Look at the New Sedona Guidelines;
  2. GDPR, CCPA and More: Round-up of State, Federal, and International Privacy Rules; and
  3. Social Media and Mobile Devices – Updated Guidance on Preservation, Processing, and Producing Obligations.

These programs, which draw from The Sedona Conference’s recently published Guidelines and other papers, offer an in depth look at three legal topic areas of critical importance to e-discovery practitioners.

Legal Holds

  • A primer on legal hold law and the impact of the 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules;
  • Determining the scope of the duty to preserve: recent court interpretations;
  • The “reasonableness” standard in implementing preservation;
  • The responsibilities of outside counsel in implementing preservation; and
  • Consequences for failing to meet legal hold obligations.

GDPR and Privacy

  • Understanding the long arm of the GDPR and how it affects e-discovery;
  • Preparing for the California Consumer Privacy Act, even if you don’t do business in California;
  • A rundown of new privacy efforts by state and local governments; and
  • How to do e-discovery in this era of heightened privacy concerns.

The program will help you prepare for, and adjust to, the rapidly evolving privacy and data security environment that we all face today, and–more importantly–will face tomorrow.

Social Media and Mobile Devices

  • Social media discovery is now standard in almost all civil litigation;
  • Text messaging is more prevalent than email in today’s business environment; and
  • Third-party apps are replacing the applications and data that used to be behind the firewall.

All sessions are eligible for Continuing Legal Education credit.

“We are delighted to continue our long-standing relationship with The Sedona Conference and are honored to have them as returning presenters at our show,” said Dean Brown, Ipro CEO.

The conference will feature over 50 other informative breakouts that cover eDiscovery and trial presentation best practices. The show is designed to help users get maximum use of Ipro technology.

3 Tips to Hold the Audience’s Attention During Your Next Trial Presentation- Part 3

Ipro tips

In the previous installment, we reviewed the power of repetition to capture the jury’s attention. If you missed it, be sure to check it out. In this next and final post in the series, we’ll touch on a few more powerful techniques you can use in the courtroom to take your presentation to the next level and be the attorney the jury remembers.

Use Attention Getters
They’re called attention getters for a reason. You don’t want to bore your audience by talking for a long time, especially with a heavy topic, so try changing things up throughout your time in front of them.
When working with a jury, litigators cannot interact with their audience like presenters in normal presentations can, but the attention and focus strategies for other presentation types can still apply. Just tailor them for trial.
Use the following presentation mechanisms to put a little variety and spice into your presentations and examinations.
• Tell an engaging story
• Use a rhetorical question that makes them think more critically about the case
• State a shocking or interesting fact the audience may not be familiar with
• Use a quote from a prominent figure or even something from your case that illustrates your point and sets the mood
• Show an enthralling clip from a video testimony
• Use a prop or creative visual aid that you can hold or use to demonstrate what you’re talking about

Conclusion
Think about what you would want a presenter to do to keep you engaged during trial. What techniques would work best to not only maintain your attention but help you understand the many moving parts of a given case?

Fortunately, the days of file boxes of boring paper exhibits are gone (almost). It’s now possible to use technology combined with compelling storytelling techniques to present your argument to the jury in a way that connects in this modern world. Now, who doesn’t want that?
