In today’s modern courtroom, the use of technology as part of a trial presentation is essential. It is important for attorneys to understand the high tech tools available to them, and Microsoft Office PowerPoint is one of the most useful tools available- if it is used correctly!

This lecture will teach attorneys how to get the most out of PowerPoint by showing how it can be used to organize a case visually, “zoom” in on important elements in a document or image using cropping and animation, charts, motion paths, animated timelines and more. Attorneys will also learn about and discuss strategies on what specific animations, colors and techniques work best in litigation scenarios.

Key course points are:
• Learn what makes PowerPoint powerful.
• See features that make PowerPoint special.
• Learn techniques that can influence viewers.
• Use these techniques and technology to win cases!
