The American Bar Association’s “Litigation Journal” published an article in the Spring 2021 issue by Jennifer Keller and Chase Scolnick.
Excerpts from the article, “Demonstrative Evidence: Tell and Show” —
In jury trials, talk is cheap. Eloquence may be enough to persuade TV audiences, but words alone rarely win verdicts. Jurors expect to be told and shown … The effective use of visual aids can be a game changer at your next trial. They are essential tools of persuasion that engage the jury and convince by demonstration. The possibilities for demonstrative exhibits are limitless. Given the importance of visual aids, courts are inclined to permit them at all phases of trial. Well-designed and thoroughly prepared visual aids will ensure a smooth and compelling presentation that will captivate and convince the jury, and win your case.
