Conceptualizing, Creating & Producing In-House Mediation & Trial Exhibits

1.5 CLE

Course Description

It has been said, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” The notion is that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single image or that it is possible to absorb large amounts of data quickly with one picture. In this seminar, we will focus on how to synthesize pertinent, case-related data and create cost-effective, eye-catching demonstrative exhibits for use at hearings, mediations and/or trials utilizing the computer software most paralegals already have on their computers. Both plaintiff and defense paralegals will benefit from this skill-set by keeping the design work “in house” and eliminating design costs for their clients.
