The speaker will provide highlights from his latest book, Dropping the Digital Anchor, published by the American Association for Justice, which explains how to effectively use technology to collect, organize, and present trial information. He will talk about the impact of modern digital presentations on classic learning techniques, from the persuasive teachings of Aristotle’s rhetoric through Richard Meyer’s multimedia learning and explain the benefit of today’s presentation tools as a means to firmly connect with a jury and focus the jurors on the important portions of your case.

A jury floating in a sea of confusion will never locate the place they are supposed to be. By anchoring them to the theories of your case, the jury will be able to observe the facts and falsities. With this knowledge, they will find the proper place to land.

2020 was a year of unprecedented challenge for all of us. We navigated through the loss of Congressman John Lewis, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Chadwick Boseman and Kobe Bryant, to name a few. The killings of George Floyd Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless others, renewed our commitment to fighting for justice and against systemic racism and injustice. 2020 was been the year of Murder Hornets, a global pandemic, over 300,000 lives lost from Covid-19, overwhelmed essential workers, racial animus, social unrest, a polarized political climate, record breaking election turnout, devastating wild fires, remote court proceedings, Zoom life, suspension of jury trials, home schooling, and the list goes on. During it all, as lawyers we have had to continue to operate our businesses, ensure access to courts, advocate for justice and provide competent representation; but to “work well,” we have to “be well.” This 2-hour presentation will focus on achieving our own well-being during times of challenge and change.

50 min/1CLE Credit
“While a juror filters arguments and evidence through a lens crafted from their attitudes and experiences, often the key to a successful jury selection is identifying jurors who are open to seeing the case from your perspective.  In the wake of the recent public health crisis, research suggests that modified court operations and social interactions will continue to evolve, including the procedures for the important legal principle and practice, the jury trial.

Join our distinguished panel for a discussion of what these changes might be and how you should consider approaching your cases now. Topics to be discussed include:

How, if at all, will procedures and protocols in place at the courthouse impact juror’s perspectives; How have the extended stay-at-home orders and their related social and economic effects impacted juror attitudes; What unique strategy issues exist when a remote selection or trial occurs; and What legal and constitutional issues exist if remote selection and trials occur.”
